First Year Advocate

One of the first people that new students meet when they arrive on campus is Linda Randall – the First Year Advocate. Ms. Randall joined the university staff to help students (and their supporting cast) make a successful transition to Southwestern – and she has hit the ground running. Students will find her in the classroom, in the residence halls, or even attending student organization meetings. Students at GSW are much more than an ID number – each member of our community is respected for the unique qualities and strengths they bring to our campus.

Ms. Randall comes to us with over 25 years of experience in teaching, advising, and diversity education initiatives in higher education. Additionally, having sent her own three daughters off to college, she is aware of the bittersweet transition this presents for parents. Ms. Randall is only a phone call or an email away to answer questions or concerns.

Being an advocate means working with students to solve problems. Ms. Randall’s easy-going personality welcomes and encourages all new students. “Students can depend on me to help get the right information and find the right college personnel to help them solve any problems that may arise. My personal mission is to help students find their place in the Southwestern community, live up to their potential, and reach their educational and life goals.”
