Hi Guys! I'm new to this whole discussion forum thing so bear with me please!(Did I spell bear wrong?... probably) I did the College Program last spring and wanted to share some tips and a little bit of my story with anyone that is going or is thinking about doing the program. I did my program in Disney World and was working in the Be Our Guest Restaurant last Spring. I met so many amazing people, and got to do so many awesome things while I was down there. The people you meet while there will truly change your life forever. You get to meet people from all over the world and see how different people live. My work location was amazing as well. Everyday going into work was an adventure and I loved every second of it. But here comes my warning: You can, and might be terminated (Disney's way of saying fired) for multiple reasons. My roommate got termed for having her sister sleep in our apartment because she couldn't afford a hotel room, I know of people who got termed for showing up late to work too many times (obviously), and I know of people who got termed for playing pranks on their friends. If you live in Disney Housing you will be subject to their rules. Coming from a college environment to Disney Housing is a huge change. I go to Penn State University so I've lived in dorm settings as well as apartment settings through school but the housing there is way stricter. There is nothing wrong with living in the housing provided, in fact I encourage it because you meet so many cool people there, but you HAVE to be careful. Follow every single rule even if it seems like they are trying to treat you like you're in kindergarten again. If you don't want to be termed follow their rules. This may seem like a lecture but I want everyone to be able to live out their experience with the program and graduate at the end, something I never got to do. I was terminated a month into my program for something I didn't do (yes this can happen, and it happens often). I had five people give written statements that I didn't do anything and one person said that I did, and yes because of that one person I had to leave. Such is the nature of the beast. I was one of my locations favorite college program students and my manager fought for me to stay but once they decide you're leaving, you leave. So please listen to me when I say, please be careful. Also, I'm 22 years old, so no I did not go home for underage drinking, and no I did not go home for poor work performance. There are many reasons to be termed during your program, not just underage drinking and poor work performance! Here's some tips: 1. If you are 21 or over live with only people that are 21 or over, they will give you this option at move in 2. If you are not 21 don't drink. It's not worth it, you will be tempted to and think that nothing will happen to you if you do but don't. If you want to stay with the program just don't do it 3. If you are in housing with all underage people have a talk with your roommates about drinking. Honestly, if you all want to drink while there you need to agree to each other that none of you will call security on the others. This is an important conversation to have and you must have it. 4. If you're in an apartment with 21 and over you need to have a talk about under aged friends coming over. If one of you has an underage friend come over and you give that one friend a beer, one beer even, your entire apartment will be termed no matter if your roommates even knew it was happening or not so again, have this conversation right from the start Just be careful! Like I said before, this program is an amazing, once in a lifetime experience, and I highly highly recommend it but I want you to leave on a better note than I did. If anyone has any questions or needs advice just message me I can give you my email and we can talk! I'm here to help or just talk about the program with anyone so feel free to talk to me about termination or just random questions about the college program I am here to help!
