USD graduating senior Haley Jacob spent last Thursday as “President for a Day.” She swapped places with USD President James T. Harris III, who in turn had the opportunity to walk a day in her shoes. This year, Jacob had a busy schedule attending various meetings and events while President Harris visited one of her classes and stopped by USDtv where she’s an executive producer. Visit the USD News Center for more.
