Transcript UH President James H. Pickering and head football coach Kim Helton laced up their tennis shoes and gathered their notebooks, pens and pencils, and headed back to the classroom on Nov. 1 and became students for one day. Pickering and Helton switched with students Brian Gruel and Mark Kallus, respectively, as part of the UH Student Foundation's Big Switch fund-raising campaign. The students performed some administrative duties while Pickering and Helton took classroom notes and visited student hangouts. "Being able to walk in Brian's shoes and having him in mine was an eye-opening experience for both of us," said Pickering. "I believe it's a good idea to share experiences because it helps people relate better, and besides, I think I look good in a teeshirt and cap," he said. Helton said though he works directly with students everyday and remembers what it was like being a college student, this opportunity allowed him to turn back the clock, even if it is just for one day. "It's important at times to look from whence you came, so that you'll know where you are going," said Helton. Greul and Kallus said they learned quite a bit from the Big Switch. "It's important because the majority of students don't fully understand the responsibilties of the administration," said Greul. "This allows the coach to see the student's daily routine before practice and gives him a chance to see how much college has changed while allowing the students to understand his responsibilities," said Kallus. The student Foundation raises funds for the university and helps and educates students for future roles in support of the university. A portion of the procedds helped buy tickets for area youths to attend a UH men's home basketball game.
