After speaking at
13 commencement,
Costolo offers
advice to students
By HILLARY CRAWFORD
DailyStaffReporter
He's back.
Twitter CEO Dick Costolo,
a University alum and speaker
at the 2013 Spring Commence-
ment, spoke Friday at the Ross
School of Business in an event
sponsored by Business frater-
nity Phi Chi Theta.
In Blau Auditorium, Busi-
ness senior Max Yoas, the vice
president of Phi Chi Theta, and
Costolo sat across from each
other in armchairs on stage,
creating an interview-esque
setting. Yoas asked questions
for the first half hour, followed
by a question and answer ses-
sion with the audience.
Costolo discussed the grow-

ing potential of e-commerce
and ad units, his management
style and his previous career
in improvisation comedy and
run-ins with actor Steve Carell.
Although scattered, each topic
drew from ideas related to risk-
takingand pursuingpassions.
After graduating from the
University inl1985 with adegree
in Computer Science end Com-
munications, Costolo said he
moved to Chicago to pursue
a career in improvisational
comedy. Looking back at his
days spent in the classroom, he
recalled being the "last person
in my computer science classes
to become CEO one day."
Costolo, originally from
Royal Oak, Mich., said he used
to worry that people would
judge him for not entering a
traditional career following
graduation.
"If you live your life trying
to do what is expected of you
you'll be frozen on the stage of
your own life," Costolo said. "If

Quicken Loans
draws 17 percent
of interns from the
University
By THERESE BREUCH
For theDaily
As students begin filling out
applications for summer intern-
ships, or attending one of the
University's career fairs, one
Detroit-based company presents a
range of options for them.
Over the past three summers,
Quicken Loans, the nation's sec-
ond largest mortgage lender, head-
quartered in Detroit, has taken
approximately 17 percent of their
interns from the University, mak-
ing it one of the highest repre-
sented colleges in last summer's
internship program.
Quicken College Recruiter Ali-
sha Roberts interned for the com-
pany in the summer of 2011. When
she started, the program was com-
prised of 200 students; it has now
grown to over 1,000 interns each
summer, with 173 of them coming

from the University
Interns have been placed in
wide variety of settingsowithin the
company, including accounting,
information technologyand mort-
gage operations.
Quicken Loans and its chair-
man and founder, Dan Gilbert,
have gained attention as har-
binger of Detroit's revitalization
efforts. In August 2010, the com-
pany moved its headquarters and
12,000 employees from a Detroit
suburb to downtown, accounting
for a major portion of the 85,000
people working in the central
business district.
Costing about $1.3 billion, Gil-
bert has updated more than 60
properties in the city.
"Thegoalhereistomakedown-

"I think the coolest thing is
being apart of the comeback
story," Roberts said.
