College students who were sent home because of the coronavirus took advantage of their last days on campus to forge a few more memories of their time in school.

For some, it was the tradition of a senior sunrise or lake swim. Others squeezed out a dining hall performance they had been rehearsing for a canceled concert or opera.

For seniors poised to graduate, it was an abrupt end to what wasn’t quite four years of late-night bonding and all-night studying.
