Hey! There are a TON of alumni on this board, and a few people who have applied for the Fall 2005 program. If you do a search or even look at some of the more recent active topics in this forum, you'll find a bunch of great information. And of course, if you have any questions, you'll definitely get great answers.

This time, last year, I found a poster on my dorm room door about the program, and had just started doing my research.

This year, I am the person putting the posters on the dorm room doors. :p

Isn't it great? I don't think they could possibly make those boxes of doorhangers any heavier.

(The great things about being a campus rep get even better once you're DONE with your LAST PRESENTATION EVER and you never have to deal with that awful pink styrofoam ever again...)

Hey, what if you are not able to make the presentation that you put on your application? Can you change it? How would you go about doing that?

Thanks!

I wish they were heavier...

We went through our doorhangers, and had them ship us more. We ended up going through all of those, plus the ones we had for another school ( we do presentations at 3 schools in the Milwaukee area ). We had to pop labels over the other school's name, but in the end, we had JUST enough. :rotfl:

Yeah, we went through 1500 this semester, all shipped in one box. That I could barely lift. (There was even a UPS tag on it noting that their people shouldn't try to lift it.) And I live in a 3rd floor apartment. The UPS man loves me now, I'm sure.

The posters are really only for putting around campus, all it really says is "Magic. Money. Experience." then it has the Presentation location and time on it. It's an informational poster, directing them to the website ( disneycollegeprogram.com ) and to make everyone aware of when the Presentation is.

Yeah, Our lead got that box, and distributed posters to the rest of us. :p

I only got the little box sending us more door hangers.

Lucky you! Our posters and rack cards were in different boxes. Those weren't fun to lift, either, but doable. :)

Hi,
My son is going to be there, from Savannah College of Art and Design, GO SCAD, anyhow, I wouldlove to visit him down there, can he get me any discounts on rooms?

What are some perks or benefits you kids get for working there?

Thanks!

Definately!

Your son would have to call the Cast Reservation line to make the reservation for you. I don't have the number off hand, but from his apartment phone, he can dial zero to be connected to the Disney operator. They can connect him to the Cast Reservation line.

He will also need to show up at the resort to confirm the reservations with his Disney Cast ID ( which he will receive when he goes through "Traditions" class ) within 10 days of the reservation arrival date.

Perks / Benefits:
Visiting the parks for free
discounts on merchandise, rooms, tickets, ect.
2 complimentary tickets for friends/family ( 1day park hoppers )
Meeting people from all around the world
Improving guest/customer service skills
Improving communication skills

I'm sure I could go on... :-p Be sure to visit wdwcollegeprogram.com and read under FAQ's. :)

That's awsome. Just one question myself- are you applying for Fall 2007? If so, I would apply ASAP, because they are getting full. For the interview, just be yourself. Make sure to smile, because they can tell. And just be honest. Good luck.
