Loughborough University Just Changed Their Logo and Students Are Not Happy
Loughborough University have just revealed their new brand. But it hasn’t had the reception they were probably hoping for…
Here’s the old logo.
And the new one.
Not that bad, right? Wrong. Everyone is pretty angry about it.

The new Loughborough uni logo is a joke. A blind person with crayons could have done better.

Mate that new Loughborough Uni logo is grim. Just an excuse to sell more branded sports gear.

The tweets go on and on. To sum up:
Just had a look at "loughborough logo" on Twitter search. NOT A SINGLE POSITIVE THING SAID! Just change it back please @lborouniversity

Loughborough jokingly responded on Twitter saying they’d bring back the old crest.
We've had a lot of interest in our new logo. Rest assured we're bringing back the crest – the original 1909 one… pic.twitter.com/xKSpKcYlpD

Students have even started an online petition to get the new logo revoked. It currently has almost 5,000 supporters.
Update 09:00: The petition now has over 6,000 signatures.
What do you think of their new logo?
