Senator Lindsey Graham said he got his “Chick-fil-A back” back after students and faculty raised concerns about adding the restaurant to the dining room on the University of Notre Dame campus. The South Carolina lawmaker promised he would “go to war” for principles, standing Chick-fil-A in a series of tweets Wednesday. “It’s disappointing to hear some ND students and faculty want to ban Chick-fil-A from doing business on campus because they disagree with the values ​​held by the founders of Chick-fil-A,” Graham tweeted. What a dangerous precedent to set.” On May 12, campus dining in Notre Dame said they were considering adding Chick-fil-A and other restaurant options to its retail dining master plan in an Instagram post.

When there are better options. “A restaurant that is closed on Sundays is not the best for a crowded, hungry college campus,” the letter said. More than 170 students and faculty have signed a letter directed at on-campus dining demanding that Chick-fil-A be removed from consideration. “Students at other universities, such as New York University and Northeastern University, have made headlines in their attempts to ban Chick-fil-A,” the open letter said. “We have no plans for such widespread disruption; instead, we would like to resolve this concern before it turns into a larger controversy.” USA TODAY has reached out to Notre Dame University and Chick-fil-A for comment.
