Upland, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- Hundreds of Taylor University students took over the Upland Circle K Convenience store Sunday night for "The Biggest Polar Pop Run You've Ever Seen."

When Circle K announced they were closing the store, students made a Facebook group and contacted the corporate office before showing up for one last frozen drink.
