The University Of Maine Probably Should Have Used Spell Check Before Handing Out This Degree
College isn't easy. For many high school graduates, a chance to head to a 4-year university represents the first real challenge of adulthood.

To be fair, everyone makes mistakes because they are human. The University of Maine system is known for being a terrific grouping of schools for higher education, and this situation was likely a small oversight. Funny? Absolutely. Unless of course you're the young lady who gets this handed to you after your 4 years of hard work. Who knows, maybe with her degree in journalism, she can become an editor. Is UMaine hiring?
