Mormon Students Are Losing Their Darn Minds Over Caffeinated Soda At Brigham Young University

Hallelujah.

Posted on

Brigham Young University, a Mormon university in Utah, announced Thursday that it would end its ban on selling caffeinated beverages.

It’s happening. https://t.co/ZjomHCrYCo

As dictated by the school's honor code, caffeinated soda was not allowed to be sold on campus. Coffee, tea, and energy drinks were fully banned (along with alcohol, premarital sex, profanity, homosexuality, and beards).

Students are straight-up losing their minds.

All around the campus, there is much rejoicing.

I never thought this day would come.

THE MUSEUM STAFF CHEERED AS THEY CARRIED THE SODA IN

It's truly a historic day.

“Tell us something interesting about yourself” “I was a student at BYU when they legalized caffeine”

I'm stoked I don't have to sneak in my personal-use beverages to BYU campus anymore

Many are thanking the university president.

Thank you, Kevin J. Worthen. Nothing but respect for MY president. https://t.co/pkBS47bZKb

And some are wondering what could be next for the school.

And in that day there shall be caffeine, and rumors of beards: but see that ye be not troubled, for all these things must come to pass

A Mormon college has never memed harder.

Nativity Scenes just went on sale at the BYU Bookstore today...

Praise be. 🙏🙏🙏

I FEEL LIKE WE ARE IN HOLES WHEN THE DROUGHT IS OVER AND THE CURSE IS BROKEN
