“This is an excellent opportunity for WSSU to improve the dining services we offer to our community,” says Jesse Batten, assistant vice chancellor, Business and Auxiliary Services. “Chick-fil-A is an exceptional brand, and we are proud to have them on our campus. Our students deserve the best and that is what we are bringing them.”
