Davidson College in North Carolina is banning Chick-fil-A, becoming the first in the nation to do so, The Huffington Post reports.

Students began a protest and collected nearly 500 signatures in an online petition calling for the school to stop serving Chick-fil-A at campus sanctioned events.

Davidson doesn't have a Chick-fil-A on campus but the company's food was served on campus events occasionally. Some colleges have protested the restaurants being on campus but none has banned the business.

In a statement to the univeristy community, Union Board President Adriana Nassar and Vice President Cameron Joe, said: "We reached out to the Union Board members to begin initial conversations, but because the board operates on consensus decisionmaking, a final decision is being put off until we can have face to face conversations and gather more student input.

"Until a final decision is made, alternative options will be served at After Midnight and other Union Board events. The Davidson College Union Board is firmly committed to building an inclusive community that serves each member of our student body."

North Carolina voted in May in favor of a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages, all civil unions, and domestic partnerships.
