Some students at Penn State say they won't forget the Taco Bell, and they held a vigil for it. The university's newspaper writes that a senior started the event on Facebook — as a joke.

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. The lights are dark, the purple bell is gone, but some students at Penn State University say they won't forget the Taco Bell near campus that recently closed. To that end, they held a vigil - flowers, candles, Sarah McLachlan songs. The Daily Collegian writes that senior Prajesh Patel started the event on Facebook as a joke. In a taco costume, he told the crowd that Taco Bell was, quote, "our home away from home and added spice to our life."
