Interning at the Happiest Place on Earth

La Salle University students apply their education in new ways.

Last summer, Madeline Fawcett, ’24, and Lauren Tirendi, ’24, headed to Orlando, Fla., for eight months for the Disney College Program. Both students are involved with the Business Scholars Co-op Program on campus and heard about the program through the program’s director Penelope Grob.

Fawcett grew up in a “Disney family,” regularly visiting for vacation, she said, and felt the Disney College Program would be a way to utilize her studies as a marketing major. Tirendi, also a marketing major, thought the program sounded like a great networking and growth opportunity. With her parents’ support, she applied.

Fawcett worked in attractions and Tirendi was in the quick service food and beverage department. Both students were able to gain real-world knowledge to help build their resumes and enhance their La Salle education.
