 U of G's President Alastair Summerlee kept his word on Wednesday when he allowed himself to be transformed into Avatar.  

The face-painting transformation came as a result of Summerlee agreeing to have his face painted as Avatar if at least 1,500 U of G students pledged to cast advanced votes in the upcoming Federal election. The 1,500 signatures were collected within 48 hours, and voting took place on Wednesday in the University Centre.

The event was coordinated by two fourth-year International Development students.
