Meet the Team

As members of the Undeclared Leadership Council, we all came to CSU as undeclared students. We each have a different story of choosing a major and pursuing opportunities in our chosen fields. Collectively we have some great experience in finding a major that fits. We would love nothing more than to help other students who are thinking through what they would like to major in. Below is a little information about a few of us. Feel free to email any of us and start a conversation about how we picked our majors, and what your process of choosing a major might look like. We would like to hear from you!

Andy Ricciardi

I serve as President of the ULC and work for CASA’s IT department.  I am a 27 year old Computer Science major with a concentration in Human Centered Computing. As a previously undeclared student and someone who did not start college right after graduating high school, I understand the struggles of finding your passion. Having goals and making plans is important! Feel free to contact me with any questions:
