Swap Day is Feb. 1 at Centenary College
Will "President" Surie Cave to Demands? Will "Student"
Schwab Cut Class, Get Ticketed?
SHREVEPORT, LA — Centenary College will have a new president and
a new student on Wednesday, Feb. 1, for the annual observance of President-Student
"President" Diya Surie will be ensconced on the second floor
of Hamilton Hall for much of the day, but she may be off campus making
calls on donors/supporters at breakfast and lunch, or in a classroom teaching
an FYE course.
Sources close to the annual observance report that some campus constituencies
are already planning Swap Day initiatives -- requests for salary raises,
tuition rebates and extra college holidays. Inquiring minds want to know:
Will President Surie bow to the pressures and sign off on any of them?
"Student" Ken Schwab will be in classes across campus. Unless
he cuts one or more, he will be taking notes or tests in art, political
science and sociology classes.
Spectators are already on the lookout for Schwab's parking strategy, standing
by to report any attempts at slipping into a reserved parking space. Sources
in the Department of Public Safety report that tickets, as usual, await
any non-presidential parkers.
