University of New Hampshire

DURHAM, N.H. — The president of the University of New Hampshire is now outright reversing, rather than just delaying, a decision to ban the sale of energy drinks on campus.

While others had raised concerns about students mixing the drinks with alcohol, Huddleston says students aren’t buying multiple servings that might imply binge drinking. He also says there is no clear evidence that students are abusing the drinks and that the brands on sale at UNH generally have caffeine levels similar to coffee.
