About 30 graduates of Northwestern University's journalism school received a little surprise on their diplomas on graduation day.

The word "integrated" in the school's name — Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications — was misspelled. The letter "n" was missing from the word.

One of 250 students who graduated Saturday pointed out the mishap, according to Al Cubbage, vice president for university relations.

"It was a mistake, and we are going to fix it," Cubbage told USA TODAY Network. "The students will get new diplomas soon."

Folks on Twitter took to the social media platform to comment on the misspelling.

In 2010, officials changed the school's name from the Medill School of Journalism to Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications.

The Chicago Tribune poked fun at the change and reported that many students did not favor the decision, claiming it "cheapens the school's heritage."
