Internship Success Stories

Kevin ParkKevin Park is a junior majoring in hospitality and resort management in the Kemmons Wilson School of Hospitality & Resort Management. He recently completed an internship at Walt Disney's Epcot Center and said: "Not only do you work for a Fortune 500 company, you also get to meet people from across the world. My roommate was from Brazil and a lot of my friends were from China." Park is open to another internship at Disney. "An internship is a really, really good way to not only get your foot in the door, but to develop more personal and professional skills."

—Kevin Park

Helen Hardin Honors

Helen Hardin Honors Students

As academically talented students prepare to enter a highly competitive job market or apply to prestigious graduate programs, they realize that a high grade point average is not enough to guarantee a job after graduation or ensure admission to a graduate program. That is why the Helen Hardin Honors Program places a high value on experiential learning in the form of internships. 

Having career-related work experiences can give honors students a competitive advantage in the job market or enhance the quality of their graduate school candidacy.  All Hardin Honors Program students are strongly encouraged to pursue (paid or unpaid) internships to fulfill the Honors Experience requirement in their junior and senior years.

Honors students who plan to use an internship to fulfill the Honors Experience requirement must be enrolled in a credit-bearing internship course.  Students should submit the Honors Experience-Internship Option form to the Honors Office (105 Honors Hall) at the start of the experience and no later than the start of the second week of classes for the semester.
