Just to be clear, I understand that there are reasonable explanations for why this word is spelled "incorrectly" by today's spelling standards. My intention was not to insult TAMU, but to point out an interesting sign on campus that made both me and my five-year-old chuckle.
If you're thinking about attending Texas A&M University, you might not want to major in spelling...it doesn't appear to be one of their strongest programs.
I spent quite a while searching for - but never found - an explanation for this engraving. Any ideas?
