Mizzou Multicultural Fail!

Ashley Thorne

In its eagerness to welcome students - that is, global citizens - to campus last week, the University of Missouri misspelled "Welcome" in Farsi and Arabic on a sign bordered by various national flags that included the word in English, Spanish, Malay, Hungarian. Whoops! That's awkward. Oh yeah, we're in Missouri, not the Dubai airport. After student center staff learned that some words had been misspelled, they blacked out the erroneous ones on the signs. Perhaps next time these citizen-of-the-world wannabes try to be cosmopolitan, they'll double check their Arabic dictionary first. H/T Chronicle Tweed
