Walt Disney World and Universal Studios better be ready for a group of pumped up, business-minded college students. The Business Club is getting ready to attend the annual travel seminar, which happens to be in Orlando, Florida this year.
Students attending are now counting down the days until Spring Break. A group of 10 students will be able to explore Downtown Disney, see a Keys to the Kingdom walking tour, venture into Universal Studios and hopefully have an incredible few days at the amusement parks.
When asked about why students are attending this seminar, Stacee Mclff, a Business Club advisor, said, “To learn about the customer service, marketing, business strategies, and successful practices of the Disney and Universal brands. Students also learn important travel skills and interacting with a diverse culture in a diverse location.”
Students are also able to earn college credit by performing research before the trip, analyzing certain aspects, such as customer service, during the trip and then reading a book related to Disney or Universal. Michelle Olsen attended the travel seminar last year and said, “I would highly recommend the business travel seminar to any student who likes to travel and is interested in learning more about the business side of popular vacation options. I have now come with the business students three years in a row. I have learned something new each time. I have also experienced great customer service and how to treat guests from a business standpoint. The other benefit to coming on the seminar is that you can get college credit for having a ton of fun. It is the best way I know to experience Spring Break at Snow College.”
International student from Japan, Sayaka Uenishi, also attended the seminar and explained how, “I would definitely recommend this experience to other students. First of all, this trip is really fun. Second, this experience will make you learn a lot when having fun. So it is definitely worth going.” Good luck to all the students attending!
