Don’t feel bad, Georgia Regents University. It’s not the first time this sort of thing has happened.

‘College’ misspelled on students’ diplomas at Georgia university

Who knew a seven-letter word could cause such embarrassment.

Graduates from Georgia Regents University’s Pamplin College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences were in for a surprise upon receiving their diplomas this month. The statement of academic achievement featured a misspelled word, a mistake dripped in irony as the word “college” in Pamplin College contained three “l’s” instead of two.

The blunder occurred as a result of an incorrect word put into a computer template the university’s Registrar’s Office uses for the diplomas. A student alerted school officials to the spelling error Monday and the diplomas were promptly reprinted sans mistake, Christen Carter, Georgia Regents’ spokeswoman, told Red Alert Politics.

Since the diplomas were only issued to the school’s summer graduates, 14 students received one with the misspelling, Carter said.

Richie Iannacone, a graduate of the university’s Pamplin College, said he was surprised such a mistake could occur, The Augusta Chronicle reported.

“Everyone makes mistakes, I guess,” he said. “I was disappointed, but it was a funny disappointment.”
