As he finishes up the last few weeks of his first year as the president of the University of Florida, Kent Fuchs has endeared himself to the students, faculty and alumni of the school. Part of that must be due to the fact that Fuchs is able to have fun and, at the same time, be willing to make a fool out of himself for a laugh.

Saturday, Fuchs had the honors of being “Mr. Two Bits” for the Gators’ football regular-season finale against the Florida State Seminoles. On Tuesday, as the men’s basketball team celebrated “Star Wars Night” in their win over Richmond, Fuchs surprised everyone in the stands when he played dress up for the occasion:

What might have been funnier is if Fuchs had come out dressed as Princess Leia, but guess this will do.
