It’s an honest mistake.

College’s Humorous Back To School Fail
How would you like to see your crosstown rival’s beautiful campus building staring you in the face everyday?
That’s apparently what students at Washington State University Pullman will have to endure this year, as a student planner distributed on the campus this month has a picture of an ornate, distinguished looking building from the University of Washington on it.

The Spokesman-Review reports that …
the cover features a picture of a cougar, the iconic Bryan clock tower and a building that was a little harder to identify. Down at the very bottom of the cover, with beautiful brick and elegant cherry trees is Savery Hall, a building located at the heart of the campus of WSU’s sworn rival – the University of Washington.
A distraught manager Leslie (no last name provided) at WSU’s bookstore The Bookie says they are aware of the problem and are working with the unidentified vendor to come to a solution.
Hey, accidents happen. Apparently the planner is made by an outside commercial vendor. Still, ouch!
