Graduate School vs. Guraduate School

Although I feel like this school is a hard fit for me, I am still proud to be a student at NAIST. We are ranked 1st in Japan for Science and Engineering in all the national graduate schools, and (somewhat by proxy) are the home institution of Professor Yamanaka, this year's recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine. So when I see mistakes like this on our main student handbook, I do get a little uppity. Regardless, I still retain a modicum of pride that someday soon I will guraduate from here with my Masters degree.
