A 2012 article in the Daily Universe said that caffeinated soft drinks are not sold on BYU’s Provo campus because of the dubious claim that there is “no demand” on campus. It makes non-Mormons scratch their head in disbelief. On the other hand, if you go to the nearby gas stations just off campus, it will be filled with BYU students who seem to demand the stuff there.
I was recently at the Brigham Young’s house (in Salt Lake City), and was surprised to see Coke sold there! What do you make of these seemingly incongruent policies? Should BYU be restricting the free-agency of students? What if they need caffeine to stay up late studying?
