Missouri State U. Misspells Own Name on Bags for Students

It’s not uncommon for a university to suffer the  indignity of an embarrassing typo. But for Missouri State University’s bookstore, a recent bite from the typo bug might be more painful than most: After all, this is the same bookstore whose director resigned last summer after officials discovered $81,000 in cash in his desk drawer.

A month before the director left, bookstore employees approved a logo design that would be used on free canvas book bags for students. But as the Springfield News-Leader reports, the bags ended up emblazoned with the misspelling “univeristy.”
