Snippet 1
  df = df.reindex(columns=column_names) 
Snippet 2
  # setting up a dummy dataframe
raw_data = {'name': ['Willard Morris', 'Al Jennings', 'Omar Mullins', 'Spencer McDaniel'],
        'age': [20, 19, 22, 21],
        'favorite_color': ['blue', 'red', 'yellow', "green"],
        'grade': [88, 92, 95, 70]}
df = pd.DataFrame(raw_data, index = ['Willard Morris', 'Al Jennings', 'Omar Mullins', 'Spencer McDaniel'])
df

#now 'age' will appear at the end of our df
df = df[['favorite_color','grade','name','age']]
df.head() 
Snippet 3
  cols = df.columns.tolist()
# Rearrange the list any way you want
cols = cols[-1:] + cols[:-1]
df = df[cols]
