City Paper is not for tourists
Spell check has doubled its lead over Georgetown.
At the school’s commencement this weekend, programs were distributed with “Georgetown University” spelled “Georgetown Univeristy” on the cover. To fix the problem, Georgetown told disappointed grads, families, and friends to contact the registrar, who will provide corrected copies of the program to anyone requesting one.
Alas, the bottom of the letter apologizing for the spelling mistake listed the “facsimilie” number of the registrar’s office.
We’re still waiting to hear back from the university about the printing costs for the new program and the number of requests they’ve received. No word yet on whether anyone else complained about the new typo. UPDATE: Georgetown spokeswoman Rachel Pugh says fewer than 100 people have called to request a corrected program.
