In an effort to improve the environment at UVU, President Holland’s first act as leader was to ban the popular Ugg Boots. Protests have sprung up all around campus in response to this result.
“I’m outraged,” said a UVU protestor, “I’m going to get all of my girlfriends from BYU to help with this unfair decision.”
Girls ranging from dance majors to home and family living majors from UVU and BYU have come together to write up the new Proposition 2, which will be reviewed and voted on whenever the UVU voting system becomes less biased. Proposition 2 will allow females to don the gingerbread man look-alike shoes if they are coming to or leaving dance class, or if they just do not feel like getting dressed in the morning.
“We will not tolerate such a huge hit to our liberties. I plan on wearing my Ugg Boots in my wedding this weekend as protest,” said another UVU demonstrator.
Signs have been placed all over Orem and Provo with captions ranging from “Prop 2 — Freedom of Shoes” to “Fugg You – We Want Prop 2.”
As tension between these enraged women and President Holland grow, skeptics are saying that the anonymous box filled with white powder that was left outside Holland’s office just yesterday was, in fact, an act perpetrated by the Ugg protestors. However, no substantial proof has been discovered thus far.
Faculty members and just about every other student at UVU have made it clear that they stand firmly behind Holland’s decision. “Finally,” said a UVU student.
Although there have been a few violations to the new act since the decision was made, teachers and students alike have found that they now enjoy coming to class more and are actually getting better grades. “This whole concept could seriously change the rest of the country,” said a faculty member. “It’s about time someone put an end to this trend.”
