Welcome to our new spring intern, Loyola senior Mike Costanzo

It’s been a while since we’ve posted on our blog here — it’s been a busy few months for us, as we’ve taken on a wide range of client projects. Given that we’ve got more work on our hands, we are glad to have some more hands to help out; last week, we welcomed a new intern for the spring, Loyola senior Mike Costanzo.

Mike is helping us out three days a week while he finishes up his coursework at Loyola, assisting on both 3Points and client efforts. Get to know Mike a bit better via the Q&A below!

What do you enjoy most about PR and communications?

What are you looking forward to most about your 3Points internship?

What is your favorite class you’ve taken at Loyola?

You’ve been part of a cool organization while at Loyola tell us about your involvement with the Food Recovery Network.

It has been just under three years since the introduction of FRN on campus, and we have seen unbelievable success each year since. Having served as both Chief Communications Officer and Administrative Coordinator, I have been lucky enough to witness the progress and growth that has driven FRN to the top tier of student organizations. Last semester alone, we decreased food waste across campus by 75%, serving thousands of families across northern Chicago. Now, with access to the dining halls each weekend, we expect that number to increase as we progress into the summer months.

You’re no stranger to the food industry, given your experience working in your family’s bakery. How has that experience shaped you?

In a weird way, I learned more than I ever thought from standing in front of that oven, and showing up at 4:00 am to relieve the third-shift guys an hour early. Things like work ethic, commitment, and integrity are the pillars that bolster success in any industry. After coming to Chicago in 2015, I understood that the continuation of such characteristics would be paramount when pursuing my goals.
