Online Protest Rages Over ‘Ugly,’ ‘Undignified’ New UC Logo
(LA Times) –
Some students and alumni have started an online petition to drop the University of California’s new and simpler logo.
“The old logo is elegant. The new one looks like a logo from a bad online university,” one person wrote on a Facebook page devoted to the issue.
“I want to keep the dignity of the UC seal,” another wrote.
The new logo has a solid “U” containing a “C” resting at the bottom, in various colors. Foes contend it “does not represent the stature and honor of the University of California.”
