Mistakes happen, it’s a part of life — but when a college university manages to misspell its own name on merchandise and then hands it out to thousands of students, you are most definitely allowed to point and laugh.

Missouri Univeristy — I mean — University in Springfield Missouri handed out thousands of canvas bags to students last month with a typo in the word “university.”

According to the Springfield news-Leader, there were a total of 17,800 bags that were order, half of which had the typo. MSU spent an amazing $70,844 on these bags and were not reimbursed since the college was at fault.

The bags were handed out to students free-of-charge in the school bookstore when one student noticed the rather amusing error. He brought the mistake to the attention of the bookstore employee on shift, but the employee decided to hand out the remainder of the bags anyway.

“Bookstore staff then made the decision to continue to hand out the bags, already filled with orders, without consulting interim bookstore management or any MSU administrator, [MSU vice president of student affairs Earle]  Doman said.

The university would have preferred they had consulted someone. Doman said the university would have immediately decided to stop handing out the “univeristy” bags.

“We would have come up with an alternative,” Doman said. “We would have come up with plastic bags had we learned of it. We have talked about those things in the past. It is just not worth it.’”
