The coronavirus rages on and college students around the country hibernate in front of their computer screens. Life becomes more bizarre by the day: joggers outside sport cutouts of old socks over their faces, the guy on the news urging you not to inhale or shoot up with Clorox, and your dream of minimizing your professor’s face in lecture has all become a reality.
