Georgetown “Univeristy”


The Washington Post reports that the commencement exercises for Georgetown last weekend went rather well, except for one thing.

According to an article by Martin Weil:

The graduation program had a misspelling on the cover. Instead of declaring the name of the institution to be “Georgetown University,” letters were transposed in the latter word. It read “Univeristy.”
