How has your experience changed or clarified your aspirations for life?
Program Testimonials
My Study USA experience changed my aspirations for life because it made me realize that I wanted to participate in the Disney College Program after I graduate from Elon. I also really enjoyed spending my Winter Term somewhere other than Elon to let me step out of my comfort zone while making new friends and lifelong memories. Disney World is one of my favorite places in the world and I truly enjoyed every moment I was there and do it again in a heartbeat.

This experience has slightly changed my plans for my future. After taking this Winter Term course I am now considering applying for the Disney College Program for the semester after I graduate. I know that if I participate in this program it could greatly change the course of my entire career.

Tell us about the most interesting academic component or course you took on this program.
Program Testimonials
The most interesting academic component I took on this program was finding the answers to my research question. I observed the popularity of Frozen amongst children and my discoveries truly shocked me. Although I can no longer go on a Frozen ride or see another Frozen item, it was very interesting to learn more about the film and why children really enjoy it. Along with that, I really enjoyed learning why Disney World goes through great lengths to make their guests happy and the impact that has on the guests visit overall.

Program Testimonials
The most interesting academic component of this program was the designing and executing of your own research project. This was the first time that I have actually developed my own research topic and did the physical research for the report.

What was a unique aspect of this program, and how did this affect you or your experience?
Program Testimonials
A unique aspect of this program was getting the opportunity to meet with some incredible former and current Disney Cast Members and talk with them about their experiences in a way that is different than if you just approached them as any guest in the Disney parks. It was also unique to get to meet the author of the Disney guidebooks and get to spend time with him.
