For ULM students wondering what President James Cofer does at his job, and how well he would do their schoolwork, a golden opportunity has arisen in the form of “Big Switch – Backpacks to Briefcases” Thursday, April 3 from 8 a.m. – noon; sign-ups begin Monday, March 17.

Cofer and prominent community members like Judge John Larry Lolley will be swapping places with participating ULM students—everyone able to see how “the other half lives.”

Interested students should go to the set-up area for each day or to the Alumni Center to fill out a ticket. Tickets are free, and students may enter as many as they like, putting their ticket into the person’s box that they would like to swap places with. Drawings for swapees will be Thursday, March 20.
