SLC partners with the Disney International College Program

2011-05-20

Early next month, twelve deserving first-year and second-year SLC business students leave for Disney in Orlando, Florida. While living on campus at the Walt Disney World Resort, from June through to December, students will be working towards earning twelve university credits from Florida State University, along with working in paid positions at Walt Disney World.  

"I am so honored to be a part of SLC’s Disney Dozen, " says John Relyea-Voss, a first-year Business Marketing student. "This internship gives me the opportunity to work with one of the world’s most respected employers, interact with international guests and employees, and the unforgettable chance to gain real-world job experience that directly relates to my chosen career path."

SLC is one of the only Ontario colleges to offer this program, which allows students to gain a competitive advantage through fundamental knowledge, career training and international exposure. This adds diverse education and real-world experience to student’s professional resumes throughout this six-month internship, while incorporating a little Disney magic along the way.

"I have vacationed with my family in Walt Disney World before and I absolutely loved it. Everything is larger than life, exciting and memorable, " says Rebecca Kirbyson, a first-year Business Administration, Human Resources student. "When the opportunity arose for me to work there, while gaining credits that contribute to the business program at SLC, there was no way I was going to turn it down!"
