Davidson College in North Carolina announced this week that it will suspend Chick-fil-A meals at student events until students later decide about doing business with the fast-food chain, the News & Record reports. The Davidson College Union Board, a group of students that organizes activities, usually serves Chick-fil-A sandwiches once or twice a year at its monthly "After Midnight" events, which offer students free food and entertainment until 2 a.m. However, following statements by Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy in support of traditional marriage, members of the Union Board decided to get students' input about serving Chick-fil-A before scheduling sandwiches for an event this year. The board will then discuss the situation and make a decision at one of its meetings early in the semester.
