While Papa John’s will still be on campus next semester, FAU Dining Services is looking for other options to take its place.

Colleges across the country are cutting ties with the pizza chain after its founder John Schnatter used the n-word during a May conference call. And it looks like FAU will be next, says Layn Alderson, an FAU Dining Services director.

She added that she’s not positive when the change in company will take place.

“It will take time to review other options,” Alderson said. Despite this, the chain will stay open in the Breezeway food court through the end of the fall semester.

Schnatter resigned July 11 after his comments went public. This prompted schools like the University of North Florida, Oregon State, and the University of Kentucky to part ways with the chain.
