There are many things that go into creating the Michigan experience. From staying up late to paint the rock or joining the Michigan Squirrel Club out on the diag, these experiences are what makes our campus so unique. It is nearly impossible to go through your 4 years here without spending a fall afternoon in the Big House.
There is a special day in the spring when you wake up early and make the walk to the Big House together with all of your friends, classmates, professors and family to celebrate the end of your college career. This year, the University is honored to announce that Dick Costolo will be the 2013 Commencement speaker.
Dick Costolo, 1985 alum with a degree in Computer Science, is the current CEO of Twitter. The Michigan Daily announced the speaker via Twitter, with a link to an interview with Costolo. It is safe to say that the #umich community on Twitter were quite excited to hear the news and quickly adopted the graduation hashtag, #MgoGrad. Below are some of the tweet highlights of the day (to see more, check out our Storify):
Even our friends from that school down south in Ohio were excited:
Dick C told us to prepare accordingly.
However, we doubt his commencement address will be anything short of inspiring.
Follow us @umich and the hashtag #MGoGrad to get all of the #Commencement updates. Commencement will be held May 4 at 10am ET.
