you do what you're excited about
doing and care about doing things
will be fine - you won't be scared
when things go wrong."
Later during the Q&A, a stu-
dent asked whether Costolo felt
as though he's "made it." Costolo
responded that, as an entrepre-
neur, it is never certain whether
one is changing his or her world
- or how they will change it.
"I assure you their (entre-
preneurs') emotional state fluc-
tuates between euphoria and
terror on a regular basis," Cos-
tolo said. "The reality is making
your mark is the result and left
in the wake of doing what you're
passionate about doing."
For example, Costolo never
imagined that his online cre-
ation would make a mark in the

political ad. When he was first
told that the Pope had entered
the Twitter community, he
believed it was a joke.
Costolo highlighted that one
shouldn't set out to change the
world, but should rather do what
they are most passionate about.
Business sophomore Nikhil
Dungarani, who also saw Costo-
lo speak at the 2013 Commence-
ment speech, said this message
of following one's passion stuck
out most to him.
"If there's one thing I took
away from today it's that you
should follow your dreams and
do what you really want to do
with your life," Dungarani said.
Aside from life lessons, Costo-
lo also discussed Twitter's busi-
ness model. When an audience
member inquired whether Twit-
ter's signature 140-character
tweet limit would ever change,
Costolo declined to give a yes-or-

no answer.
As business grows, he said,
people involved become fearful
of changing the popular product
and hurting its success. But Cos-
tolo said he wants to avoid stasis.
"We're much more free-think-
ing about not having a religion
about the constraints," Costolo
said. "People start to put barriers
in their own way to being cre-
ative and having new ideas."
Costolo also addressed the
growth in using social media to
sell products. As opposed to dis-
playing ads in a sidebar, Twitter
displays ads as tweets, similar
to how Facebook displays ads as
posts on the newsfeed.
If ads travel alongside the
tweets, people are more likely to
follow links.
The conversation also
touched on Twitter's stock
shares, which had jumped in
value that morning.

"We have to start to realize
that going forward, the external
narrative is going to be based on
what's happening on the stock
price," Costolo said. "You just
have to build this mindset of
mental toughness and we decid-
ed we're going to do this despite
the noise."
Yoas said PCT decided to
bring Costolo to the University
both because he is analum and
because of "connections within
the fraternity that know him
pretty well."
"I really hope that people
understood the impact and the
power that social media has,
both in everyday life and in
businesses," Yoas said. "I think
it's a really useful tool for busi-
Yoas and other PCT adminis-
trators of the event declined to
comment on the specific subject
matter of the talk with Costolo,

because the fraternity decided
to label the public event as "off
the record."
Business Adjunct Lectur-
er Kai Petainen, a writer for
Forbes, challenged that decision
in a Nov. 22 and Nov. 23 article.
Although Costolo did not
determine the "off the record"
status of the event, he took no
action to challenge PCT's deci-
sion, according to Petainen.
Though PCT advertised the
event as open to the public, the
business fraternity asked jour-
nalists not take notes or snap
photographs. A member of
PCT asked the journalist from
The Michigan Daily to see her
notes. Members of PCT tweeted
updates and photos of the event.
Most problematic, Petainen
wrote, was that PCT wanted
to withhold potentially vital
information about Twitter from

"The greatest error in this
event was in how the CEO's
comments were to be kept
secret," Petainen wrote in
Forbes. "Twitter was a public
stock, this was a public event,
this was held at a public uni-
versity and this was in front of
a packed auditorium with hun-
dreds of students."
Editor's Note: While the event
organizers asked that this event be
held "off the record," because the
discussion was held in a University
of Michigan building, advertised
as open to the general public, and
members of the fraternity tweeted
live updates and photographs from
the event, theDaily has decided that
it is in the public interest to publish
this story in line with our normal
reporting procedures. PCT was not
given the opportunity to review this
story or change its content before

"I think a big part of it is our
internship program, and the fact
that we bring 1,000 college stu-
dents into the city, the urban core,
every summer," she said.
Quicken Loans' objective is to
bring young people into the city
and send them back to their cam-
puses with a better understanding
of Detroit.
Business junior Sarah Wax-
man interned with Quicken Loans'
Accounting Department last sum-

Loans housed their interns.

"My favorite part was probably
living at Wayne State and justbeing
able to explore Detroit and do a lot
of fun things onthe weekends," she
In their free time, the interns
went to dinner, saw movies, visited
the Eastern Market, and even took
a trip to Belle Isle, an island in the
Detroit River.
Although Waxman cannot pic-

thinks there is potential for the
"Right now there is like a hip-
ster, underground sort of move-

ment going on, a lot of different
cool, weird places and restaurants
to go to," she said.
This past summer, Quicken
Loans had over 17,000 applicants,
nearly doubling the 8,000 appli-
cants in 2012.
"The interest is there in our
company and our family of compa-
nies and that's the really exciting
part," Roberts said.

would be that they would want to
be apart of something that's bigger
than themselves," Roberts added.

Moore and a team built a mecha-
nism which made it easier for
individuals in wheelchairs to
carry backpacks. In an interview
with The Michigan Daily follow-
ing his designation as a Rhodes
Scholar, Moore said he enjoyed
being able to work on team-based
projects throughout his time as
an undergraduate, especially
those like the backpack carrier.
"Being able to produce some-
thing that was one step closer to a
device that could actually be used
was cool, and it was practical,"
Moore said. "We knew it was even-

tually going to help someone with
their daily needs."
Moore also developed a new
way to do needle biopsies as part
of a project with the University's
Mechanical Engineering and Wu
Manufacturing Research Center.
"For me, I had no prior experi-
ence in the medical field, so it was
really cool to follow around doc-
tors and find out about devices
they need," he said. "The needle
biopsy was really the first project
I was given a lot of freedom on,
proving a concept that a Ph.D.
student had developed, and now
I check in every once and a while
and it's still moving along...it's
exciting to see that I was able to
contribute to a product that can

hopefully make life a lot more
comfortable and easy for the
"patient and the doctor."
Moore, who is also a captain
of the University's varsity swim
team, said finding time to balance
both his sport and academics has
been difficult but possible because
of support from the Athletic
Department and the swim team.
"I can't thank both those
groups enough for providing
me the support and opportuni-
ties that I needed to really fur-
ther my education," Moore said.
"Because that's what we're really
here for - a great education - so
we can go out into the world and
make a difference."
With the Rhodes scholarship,

Moore said he plans to pursue a
one-year MBA program at Oxford
after he finishes up the engineer-
ing and computer science masters
program he is pursuing at the
University. After that, he said he
will explore options in technol-
ogy and sustainability.
"I'm really hoping to learn
about different business mod-
els and how the tech industry
with sustainable products can be
marketed, and maybe even start
my own company," he said. "But
who knows what will happen
in another two years - I could
never have seen myself being a
Rhodes Scholar two years ago
- so things can definitely can
