The ULM 31 Ambassadors Plan two Exciting Events for Students

Students on the campus of the University of Louisiana at Monroe can get ready for two exciting events that are aimed at enhancing the fun of their college experience. The student group 31 Ambassadors is organizing a comeback of the "Big Switch" and the all-new "Treasure Hunt".

For the "Big Switch," students can purchase a chance to switch places for a day with ULM President Dr. James Cofer, Vice President of Student Affairs Dr. Wayne Brumfield, or Director of Student Development Valerie Fields. The students whose names are drawn to switch will perform all of the daily duties of the administrator, and the administrator will attend all of the student's classes. ULM students can purchase the $1.00 tickets from members of the 31Ambassadors. The switch will happen from 8:00 am - 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 6, 2002. At the end of that day, the 31 Ambassadors will sponsor a dinner for the winning students and the participating administrators.

The "Treasure Hunt" will be held on campus October 28 to November 22. During the four weeks of the "Treasure Hunt" students will have to find the hidden treasure. A $100.00 prize will be hidden each week somewhere on the ULM campus for four weeks. Clues to the location of the prize will be available at the Anna Gray Noe Alumni Center and at the Student Union Building. All ULM students with a valid student ID will eligible to participate.
