AT&T Company Profile

December 9, 2008

I’m Mike.  I’m a senior at CSU studying Applied Computing Technology.  I listen to a lot of music and I am definitely in love with the Michigan Wolverines football team.  Even though they had the worst season ever this year I’m confident we’ll be back in the National Championship next year.  Other than that I am ready for winter break.
