Now, I come from KDE, so I can only guess and give you hints / analogies. In the KDE login panel (kdm), there is a drop-down menu which lets you choose the GUI during login. (Same in GNOME / (gdm) ?). If so, there is also either the possibility to tick a button [make choice of GUI permanent] or, during logout you can save the settings to later come back to the then GUI of your (last) choice.
Just look for something similar in GNOME. Good luck.
