DAVIDSON, N.C. -- Davidson College will suspend Chick-fil-A meals at student events until students later decide about doing business with the fast food chain.

Statements by Chick-fil-A s president Dan Cathy who said he was guilty as charged in supporting the biblical definition of the family unit sparked a national outcry by same-sex marriage supporters.

The Davidson College Union Board, which is a group of students that organizes College Union activities, usually serves Chick-fil-A sandwiches about once or twice a year at its monthly After Midnight Events, according to a release from the school.

The monthly events have taken place since 2001, and they offer students free food and entertainment until 2 a.m.

Members of the Union Board choose the menu for the events and have decided to get students input about serving Chick-fil-A before scheduling sandwiches for an event this year, the release said.

The board will then discuss the situation and make a decision at one of its meetings early in the semester.

Classes at Davidson begin August. 27.
