The Program notes the name of the school is the "Lyndon B. Johnson School of Pubic Affairs", making the tagline "Unlimited Possibilities" even more meaningful.

"Obviously, we are mortified. It's beyond embarrassing," said Susan Binford, assistant dean for communications at the school. Unfortunately, by the time they noticed, the programs had already been distributed to students.

"As soon as we realized the mistake, everybody went into overdrive and we went to work to reprint it," she said, adding that the corrected version will be sent to graduates. Yeah, but which one would you keep?!

To truly demonstrate their ability to communicate in the students' language, they Tweeted an apology — and misspelled the word "egregious".
