EVANSTON, Ill. — Journalism students at an Illinois university might want to reconsider their academic choice after the school made a major boo boo when it proudly handed out diplomas to graduates. Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communication, gave 30 diplomas to graduates on which the word “integrated” was spelled as “itegrated.” Of course, a photo of the error was then tweeted out by one of the grads and word of the mistake soon spread, according to the Associated Press. Desiree Hanford, Medill’s journalism residency co-ordinator, said the diplomas are issued by the university and new versions will be provided.
