1. RETIRED UC GUY

 

The old logo was nice and historic. The new logic is pure commercial. I read the old logo will be used for important documents. I guess this means the new logic is for the peons. The reason for the change is that the words can not be reproduced with NEW copiers. What a waste of time and money.

2. And, apparently, it looks better

on "marketing materials" - i.e., requests from alum for donations! More corporatization of education.

3. I hate it.

The commercialization of the UC system is a tragedy.

4. The Prop 13 cause wholesale

destruction of CA's excellent education system is related to that tragedy - although the commercialization of public institutions of education is a chronic and rampant problem nationwide. I work at one like that now and I want out so bad I can taste it ... but the jobs are few and far between.
