Top Journalism School Misspells Own Name on Diplomas Published: June 25, 2014

More than two dozen diplomas handed out over the weekend to graduates of Northwestern’s famed journalism school — long a stickler for spelling — contained an error, according to The Chicago Sun-Times.

The word “Integrated” was missing the “n” on about 30 of the 250 diplomas awarded Saturday by the Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communication, school spokesman Alan Cubbage said. “We’ll provide new ones for those students,” he said.

Had a student made the mistake in an assignment, the work would have automatically been tagged with a “Medill F” — a dreaded stamp that is earned by students who commit fact or spelling errors, The Sun-Times reports.
