The caffeine-free policy has been in place for more than 50 years.

"Despite what was reported, the Church revelation spelling out health practices does not mention the use of caffeine", the Church said in a statement at the time.

Jenkins noted that students have always been free to bring their own caffeine-filled beverages onto campus.

"I absolutely love it". The university will also offer caffeinated options at sporting events. However, the post said it does prohibit "hot drinks", specifically coffee and tea. "Nor should members use harmful or habit-forming substances except under the care of a competent physician". The Mormon church-owned private university still will not sell highly caffeinated energy drinks, but will offer "freestyle" Coca-Cola machines allowing personalization of sodas. A group of entrepreneurial students recognized the demand earlier and launched a soda-delivery business.

Whether it's been an espresso-laced coffee or a cold Coca-Cola, caffeinated drinks have fueled campuses for decades. Employees don shirts that say, "I'm a caffeine dealer".

The paper describes a trend where "dependence on caffeine consumption has become a humble bragging topic among college students in the LDS culture", and that "most students know of a friend or have heard a story of the person who hides a Diet Coke in her purse in the back of a sacrament meeting". "For heaven's sake, we're not dealing drugs".

"Consumer preferences have clearly changed", the university's dining services page explained in announcing the change.
