University Misspells “College” On Graduates’ Diplomas


Georgia Regents University did not spellcheck the diplomas dispersed to graduating seniors. It seems a bit odd that they didn’t go over the diplomas with a fine tooth comb since diplomas are pretty important. Fourteen summer graduates from GRU’s Pamplin College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences saw that on their diplomas college was spelled with three Ls.

The mistake was fixed after a few days and the students received a proper diploma but at least they all have this amazing story filled with puns (the most important part of a story) about how “worthless” their degrees are and how “useless” majoring in humanities is. So many puns!
