My freshman class was the last one to hand in our 'Introductory Programming' exercises (in Fortran) on punched cards. Or rather: We wrote our code in special Fortran coding forms, and these were punched by secretaries, and the card decks put in the (physical!) job queue.

The Univac 1100 mainframe did have an option for punching binary files to cards. I believe that the dump was more or less direct binary, zero being no hole, 1 a whole, 4 columns per 36 bits word. Such cards were almost 50% holes, so you would have to handle them with care! (I never used binary card dumps myself.)

The advantage of punch cards is that you had unlimited storage capacity. When we the following year switched to three 16-bit minis, full-screen editor and Pascal, we had 3 * 37 Mbyte for about a thousand freshman students. When the OS and system software had taken its share, each student had access to less than 100 kbyte on the average, and no external storage option, so we had to do frequent disk cleanups (I was a TA at the time, and the TAs did much of the computer management).
