Andrea Lauderdale, student success coordinator and transfer student recruiter at Northwestern Oklahoma State University, has been selected by the Staff Council as the recipient of the 2020 fall semester Campus Kudos Award.

Sue Burks, financial aid assistant director and Staff Council chair, and Staff Council member Megan Patel, international student adviser and administrative assistant to Student Services, presented Lauderdale with her Campus Kudos award.

The person nominating Lauderdale for this award said, “Andrea goes above and beyond the call of her office and makes a huge difference in the lives of Northwestern students every day. Students are always coming in and out of her office, many who need to get enrolled or get advice on what classes might be best for them (whether she's their adviser or not), others who just need help getting something done on campus, and a few who simply need a friendly face and willing ear to listen.

“Andrea will drop whatever she's working on in an instant if a student walks into her office and needs help, even if it has nothing to do with her job title. She genuinely wants to see every student succeed and enjoy their experience at Northwestern and exemplifies that in her actions every single day.”

Campus Kudos is a public acknowledgment created by the Northwestern Staff Council that applauds the efforts of eligible staff members who have displayed an act of kindness above their job responsibilities. This award is presented each semester, including the summer term.

“This makes my heart so happy,” Lauderdale said. “I love my job, coworkers, and our students here at Northwestern. I am so fortunate to be in a place that I look forward to going every day. Thank you so much for this award!”
