Graduate Senator

Danté Lavender

Hello, my fellow Highlanders! My name is Danté Lavender and I’m the graduate senator. I attended Radford University as an undergraduate, and I proudly graduated as a Highlander Scholar with a degree in psychology. I am currently a graduate student in the Counselor of Education Department with a focus in Clinical and Mental Health Counseling. After my time here at Radford University, I will pursue a Doctoral degree in Industrial/Organizational Psychology, where I hope to begin a career in consulting within military services. I joined the Student Government Association because it is my desire to assist in improving the college experience for all Radford University students. If there’s anything that I can do to assist you, please feel more than free to contact me at Dlavender3@radford.edu

Junior Class Senator

Rebecca Pinsky

Hey Highlanders! My name's Rebecca Pinsky. If you're a junior, I'm your class senator. I'm a communication studies major with a philosophy minor (I'm also... A junior). Catch me on campus in the colorful pants if you've ever got questions or comments about RU. Joining SGA was my way to be a part of simple, effective, and positive change on campus. Let's make things happen!! Junior year is a great time to become a leader and get involved, so consider coming out and getting to know both the SGA and the student body! After college, I'd like to do volunteer work abroad for a few years, come back to Radford to get my M.S., get my J.D., and then go on to the Navy's JAG Corps. Email me at or drop by the SGA office (Bonnie 209) any MWF from 11-12 if you'd like to get in touch, email me at rpinsky@radford.edu
