The Disney college program (DCP) is a chance for college students to work at Disney Parks, this provides a great gateway to responsibility, creativity, and close friendships.

A dear friend of mine, Sammy Jo Hosler, attended the DCP during the Fall and Spring of her Junior year. Sammy Jo states that DCP is a "wonderful opportunity for college students", she recommends those who are confused in their stage at college to take a semester off to work for them.

Her favorite part of this experience was the opportunity to make friends, 2 later and she is still close with her coworkers! Aside from being able to go to a Disney park every day, there are plenty of fun events to attend to if you are in the DCP which gives you the chance to make friends outside of work or roommates.

Sammy Jo also informs that this experience showed her that you DO NOT need to spend all of your time at the parks, some of her favorite times were just with her roommate watching movies.

Also, don't be afraid to roam the parks by yourself! It can be super relaxing to just walk around and do whatever you please in your own time. Another piece of advice from Sammy Jo is that make sure to take plenty of pictures, once you come back home they are a great way to reminisce and get nostalgic over your great times at the Walt Disney Parks.

The Disney College Program can be a life-changing experience for anyone with a great attitude, work ethic, and love for Disney!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
