A tipster sent Gawker one of the above photos of Georgetown University's "thick" commencement book, where there is one pretty conspicuous spelling error.
According to the blog Georgetown Voice, Georgetown’s 2011 commencement book contains "the name and high school of every graduating senior, the name, college, and discipline of every graduating graduate student, and loads of other quasi-useful information, including a brief history of our fine University." Or Univeristy, ha-ha. Over 2,000 students in the class of 2011 graduated on Saturday, so let's hope the administration's plan wasn't to pray that no one would notice.
University Registrar John Q. Pierce sent an e-mail to campus press organizations apologizing for the error.
“We recognize that the tradition of excellence we celebrate today far exceeds this oversight,” he wrote. "Those who want to obtain a corrected copy may do so by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org."
