Information Technology (IT) Consultant Danny Le has only been working at CSUDH for a year, but in a way, getting a job on campus was a kind of homecoming–Le is a Toro alum who graduated with a BA in computer technology in 2014.
The Gardena native returned to CSUDH in 2021, and now spends his days “running around campus trying to assist everyone with their technical issues.” He says he’s proud to be able to “come back and use the skills I’ve learned here to give back to students, faculty, staff, and the community.”
He doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon, either. He recently had an opportunity to fill a vacant position in another department, but says that soon enough, “I realized I love what I do, and want to keep doing it for the rest of my life.”
“Working at DH is special to me because I get to build lots of great relationships with all the fantastic people that work here,” Le continues. “When I worked in the private sector, I felt like I was just working to make someone else turn a profit. Here, I can use my skills to assist staff and faculty with educating the younger generations to build a better tomorrow.”
Prior to joining the CSUDH IT team, Le held a few other jobs, including working at the giant FAO Schwarz toy store in New York City. He got the bug to go into IT work because “Everybody kept asking for me for help with their computers!”
When not working, Le says that his favorite pastime is “wasting money” – which fits in perfectly with his favorite place to spend time: Las Vegas.
If you run into Le while he’s doing his campus rounds, you’re sure to get a smile. As he puts it, “I get to come to work doing what I love to do and having fun every day!”
