Ed Sheeran Professor at University of Central Florida and His Many Other Roles

See the different roles the singer has assumed this year.

— -- Ed Sheeran: College professor?

The singer visited the University of Central Florida on Monday after students helped the school win a social media contest to get him on campus.

"God help everyone involved," he joked on Twitter.

About 300 tickets were issued to those who shared their votes for UCF on Twitter and Facebook. The contest was sponsored by Chegg, a textbook rental website, and launched back in January. In addition to Sheeran's appearance, UCF's music department received a $10,000 grant.

This isn't the first time the singer has done something out of the ordinary. Here are a few other roles he's played recently, in addition to professor:

Texting Buddy

Taylor Swift is preparing to launch her world tour in Tokyo, while her good friend, Sheeran, is in the middle of his. However, the two have stayed close via text, as evidenced by Swift's Instagram post from yesterday. "You'd think for multi-platinum lyricis we'd do better [at texting]," he wrote to her.

Hotel Housekeeping

Sheeran once told a story about trashing his L.A. hotel room after the Grammy Awards in 2014. However, he felt so guilty about doing so that he made sure to clean it all up by himself. “I literally de-trashed my room and put it back to normal. If I trash a hotel room, will anyone like me more? You’re not going to have kids going, ‘Oh, that’s really cool and edgy.’ You’re probably going to get a ticked-off maid and that’s about it," he told Parade magazine.
