WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The national outrage over Chick-fil-a's stance on gay marriage has moved to the local campus of UNCW.

Student, Brice Horton has taken action to get the restaurant removed from the school.

Horton says he's contacted Aramark, the company that handles food concessions at UNCW.

"At this time the university and Aramark are reviewing the situation and receiving feedback from the Student Government Association and other organizations on this issue," explained Horton.

Wednesday will mark "Chick-fil-a appreciation day," originated by former GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee.

Other high profile supporters are expected to participate, including the Reverend Billy Graham.
