Colleges across the nation are reopening their doors after the summer break and welcoming a new class of students. And with many of those students paying a small fortune in tuition, they kind of expect their new colleges to get basic English correct. If you're a learning institution, there are certain levels of grammar you're expected to have a handle on.
Sometimes mistakes happen. It's part of life. But this University is definitely going to never hear the end of this mistake that's making them look pretty bad.
Over the summer, Wichita State University decided to add some branding to their water tower. But when students started to return, they immediately spotted an issue...
And yes, they got relentlessly mocked online for it.
Yes, Wichita Staty Universite really screwed that one up. Even Mayor Jeff Longwell spotted the issue almost instantly. High Learning never looked so good!
While the City of Wichita said "sory" for the mistake and promised to get it fixed "ASIP." Even the city has a sense of humor about it. Nothing really gets done quickly in the government though, so we'd suspect it'll be hanging around on that water tower for awhile.
Lauragail Gamble with the City of Wichita told WNDU that the blame wasn't on the university because city workers had made the mistake, adding that they fixed the error on Friday.
Wichita State University's Media Relations Director Joe Kleinsasser only had one comment: "Does anyone have ten gallons of white out?" Though the mistake was unfortunate it was still a funny gaff for the University who can probably get a good laugh about it once it's all said and done. Who knows, they could potentially use it in some recruitment material down the road.
Million dollar idea.
