UC Dumps Its Scorned New Logo

The University of California says the derided graphic was never intended to replace the traditional seal but decides to quit using it amid the online barrage of criticism.

The University of California is suspending use of a new logo that has drawn widespread online criticism, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.
