Student group votes to forego Chick-fil-A
by Staff Writer
In the past, Chick-fil-A was one of several vendors at the Union Board event, which is held monthly and typically features free food and entertainment. Chick-fil-A was served once or twice a year since the event began about a decade ago.
The college administration was not involved in the decision, and the Union Board’s decision is in no way an official position of the college. There is no formal relationship between Davidson College and Chick-fil-A, and the restaurant has no facility on campus. Other student groups, as well as individual students, faculty and staff are free to serve Chick-fil-A at their events and to patronize the restaurant, according to a news release on the college’s website.
Adriana Nassar, Union Board president, and Cameron Joe, Union Board vice president, issued a statement on behalf of the board following the decision.
“Based on feedback gathered through an open forum, an electronic poll, informal conversations and hours of Union Board discussions, the Union Board believes the interests of Davidson students are best served by not patronizing Chick-fil-A for this school year,” she said.
