UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA STUDENTS GIVE UP COFFEE AND SODA Most college students would cringe at the thought of giving up their daily coffee or

caffeinated soda, especially for 10 straight days.

Five hundred University of Oklahoma students, however, have been drinking only

water, or limiting their consumption of drinks like coffee and soda, since Monday. The students are pledging the money usually spent on other beverages to Living Water International’s 10 Days program.
