EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — An Illinois university's typo is getting national attention.

Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communication recently gave 30 diplomas to graduates on which the word "integrated" was spelled without the 'n.'

Kit Fox, who was one of 250 students who graduated from the school Saturday, tweeted a photo of a friend's diploma that showed the error.

The diploma would have been tagged with a "Medill F" — a stamp earned by students who commit factual or spelling errors. Fox said graduates greeted the error with humor.

Desiree Hanford, Medill's journalism residency coordinator, said that diplomas are issued by the university and that new diplomas will be provided.
