Transcript big switch Chet Gladchuck of the UH Athletic Department plays a round of pool in the UC gamesroom as he takes a break from classes after switching places with a student for a day Photo by Rich Risma tradi 111! ,1, f. A. places lor a day Students and administrators switch, lives for on& day Ever wonder what it would be like to trades places with UH President Arthur K. Smith? Well, one lucky student got the chance when they participated in the Big Switch. The Big Switch is a contest that has become a University of Houston tradition. Students and administrators switch places for one day. The big winner is the student who gets to trade places with the president. This year the Big Switch took place in October and Maria Gomez, a pre-med sociology major was the lucky student that got to trade places with Smith. Gomez spent her day in the presidents office meeting with various people and handling minor issues of the day. Smith on the other hand spent his day as a student. His part of the deal was to switch places with Gomez and do all the things she did for a day as a student. Smith went to Gomez's classes and took notes and participated as if he were a regular student. Smith was free of any administrative duties for the day, so it was almost like a day off for the UH president. Other administrators that participated in the Big Switch were Chet Gladchuck of the UH Athletic Department. Gladchuck spent his day experiencing life as a UH student, rather than the director of the UH Athletics. Gladchuck was even found spending some of his time in the UC games room. He played pool with some other students after attending a few classes. For the lucky students it was a nice time to be in charge and it was a site to see all the administrators taking on the daily duties of students. For the 2000-2001 year, the Big Switch proved successful. Everyone was a sport about participating and the event helped students and administrators realize exactly what the other goes through in one day at the University of Houston. -Linda Canales T^f 38l5tudcnt Life President Arthur K.
