Right, the reducing agent is oxidized because it facilitates and allows for the reduction of the other species. One way to think about it is the oxidation produces the electrons transferred to actually reduce the other species.
Just remember that what ever reduces/oxidizes (or is the "reducing/oxidizing" agent) is the one getting oxidized/reduced. Then you can tell if it is the cathode (reduction) or anode (oxidation) half reaction
