More than 1,800 degrees were expected to be awarded to TCU students during three ceremonies on Saturday, a day that will long be remembered by the graduates and their families.
For some, the memory might include a chuckle.
On the first page of the program for the ceremonies, Texas Christian University was misspelled Univeristy.
The Star-Telegram certainly understands how typographical errors happen — we stumble upon them daily in stories that are published online and in print.
As for the TCU typo, a school spokeswoman said, “We will investigate on Monday to determine how that happened.”
Meanwhile, here’s a breakdown of TCU’s spring commencement, by the numbers:
