HEMPSTEAD, N.Y., Sept. 27 (UPI) -- Hillary Clinton's name was misspelled on the ticket students received to the first presidential debate Monday night, attendees said.

The typo left the Democratic party nominee with only one "l" in her first name instead of two, spelling it as "Hilary," not "Hillary." As the official ticket was handed out to 350 student attendees at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., social media began to pick up on the discrepancy with photos showing the misspelling on the face of the ticket.

Hofstra University spokeswoman Karla Schuster said in an email to NBC 4 New York, "These tickets are not official tickets to the debate. They were printed at the last minute to create a souvenir for the students. We'll be reprinting them for all those who won tickets."

The commemorative tickets were the ones that featured the spelling error and not the official ones, said a Commission on Presidential Debates spokesman. He did not say who printed the tickets with the error.
