A Couple in the Senior Sunrise

On March 11, 2020, Boston College announced that all the classes in the semester are moving to online as a response to the pandemic of COVID-19. For senior students, it means the immediate end of their college life on campus forever, which is way earlier than they expected. On-campus students were to move out within a few weeks. On March 15, there was an event called the Senior Sunrise, where many senior students gathered at a reservoir near the campus to see the sunrise. Around 200 people supposedly flocked around the reservoir to bid farewell to their friends and their campus life. This is a moment of the Senior Sunrise.
