Emory Dining Hall Redesign Will Result in Chick-fil-A Leaving
Emory University confirmed reports Monday that when a dining hall is redesigned, Chick-fil-A will no longer be part of the facility. Some students at Emory, citing the anti-gay statements and political contributions of its CEO, have been pushing for Chick-fil-A's removal. And nationally, students on many campuses have been trying to get the restaurant chain removed from campus offerings. But a statement released by Emory made no mention of the restaurant by name, and just referred to a student advisory committee having evaluated all options. A spokeswoman for the university said that the review of restaurant options predated the controversy over Chick-fil-A and was not related to Chick-fil-A's politics.
