A group of College of Charleston students has joined the backlash against Chick-fil-A because of the company’s stance against gay marriage.
An online petition is asking the college to drop plans to open a Chick-fil-A in Berry residence hall this fall. As of tonight, the petition had gathered 355 signatures. The goal is to get 500 signatures.
Students from seven colleges around the country have launched similar petitions on the website since last week, according to the website.
A College of Charleston spokesman said college officials won’t comment on the petition until they actually receive it.
