Northeastern Students Vote No on Chick-fil-A

According to an article in the Herald, Northeastern University's student government voted decisively to block a proposed Chick-fil-A from entering their student center. The reason has nothing to do with food: the Atlanta-based chain allegedly support groups that are opposed to gay rights. The Herald reports that a foundation created by the fast food chain's founder contributed "in excess of $1.7 million to anti-gay causes in 2009." According to the article, the university is proud of the decision. Other schools, including NYU, have been less hostile to the company.
