California State University’s grad stole features a pretty brutal spelling error
Graduation is full of questions: What am I doing with my life? What kind of job do I really want? Wait, is… did my school misspell “California”?
At least one of those questions has a definitive answer.
Not only is it the state, but the first word in the name of the actual university. New slogan— “California State University: We’re Doing Our Best.”
The redditor who posted this online Monday said that all students who received the stole were given a refund in the form of a campus bookstore gift card, because oh yeah, they had to pay money for these things.
Nothing instills comfort in the heads and hearts of parents (and students) who spent tens of thousands of dollars on an education like showing up to the grad ceremony and finding out their money went to Califorina State University.
That being said: of all the states out there, California is definitely a tricky one to spell. Lot of unusual vowel-consonant combos— nothing a little proofreading couldn’t fix, but tricky all the same.
