Christian University encourages students not to work at Hooters restaurant

by Eno Adeogun

Abilene Christian University (ACU) in Texas told an ABC affiliate why the campus has asked students to avoid aspiring to become "hooter girls".

Emerald Cassidy, ACU's director of public and media relations, said: "We have asked students to consider both what Hooters represents and whether that is something they really want to support in terms of both their faith and the value this business model places on women.

Referencing the university's handbook which challenges "students to make decisions that ultimately glorify God" both on and off campus, she added: "If a student was in a position where the university felt they were not upholding the standards in the handbook, we'd address those issues with that student at that time.


The world-famous restaurant chain is credited for being the first and leading 'breastaurant' -food establishments where skimpily-dressed female are waitresses.

In a promotional video about becoming a "Hooter Girl", students are encouraged to apply via employee's testimonies.

One server said: "We have a really flexible schedule if you are in school."

Another lady says: "I love that my management works around my school schedule.

"Being able to come in to work every day and not stress about a test... is a really great thing."
