“voted unanimously against the proposal”
There was apparently concern because the owner of Chick-fil-A holds the same position on gay marriage that Obama did when he entered office.

Students at Fordham Are the Latest to Run a Chick-fil-A Off Their Campus
College undergrads: America’s greatest threat to Chick-fil-A’s quest to put chicken sandwiches in every citizen’s hand six days a week. In the latest chapter of this fight, the Fordham University Lincoln Center campus was all set to get a location all its own — the Fordham Observer reports that it just needed the student government and a few other groups to rubber-stamp the proposal. But like such proposals do on most campuses these says, the idea ran into way more hostility than the Catholic school’s administration had expected.
After discussing it in early March, the university decided to seek additional opinions from an LGBTQ advocacy group, Rainbow Alliance. When they expressed reservations, Chick-fil-A’s reps offered to “collaboratively run unspecified programming,” according to the student paper.
Whatever that pledge entailed, the group apparently rejected it, and voted unanimously against the proposal, telling the paper on Friday that they refused to back a fast-food company that’s been tied to “other institutions that work to destabilize and demolish movements for queer equity.”
