On Thursday morning, Brigham Young University announced the university will offer caffeinated soft drinks -- including Coca-Cola -- on campus and fans couldn’t contain their excitement.
The BYU Twitter account posted the news along with a Q&A with BYU director of dining services Dean Wright on the decision to bring caffeinated soft drinks on the Provo, Utah, campus for the first time since the mid-1950s.
BYU is is owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints and requires students to adhere to a strict honor code in line with the church’s beliefs.
