The Roundup is the Jesuit Dallas Student Voice and Newspaper since 1942. Learn about us.

The sound of hundreds of Freshman's feet walking across the Terry Center, unknowing of the events of the day to come. The chatter between Freshman, obnoxiously playing "Among Us" or talking about the presidential debate as they wait for further instruction. Eventually, the noise dies down, the phones are set on silent, and Mr. Marr sets the tone for...
Carter Williams was named Ranger of the Week after a great start to his senior year in which he has excelled as a leader on the yearbook staff while helping the cross country team to a third-place finish in its first race of the 2020 season. Among the top of the class academically and a natural leader of his peers,...
Carson has embraced his role as a leader at Jesuit. He is a senior service site ambassador working at Chance’s Pie Shop, freshman big brother, freshman retreat leader, and member of the Spanish Honor Society. Carson, who volunteered to help with new teacher orientation and is very active in scouting, he spent the past two weekends volunteering to help...

On Monday, August 31, 2020, during The Roundup's weekly staff meeting, I had...

Anyway, for my last article, I think it would be fitting for me to give y'all one final piece of media-- after all, that is my job. This video is special to me, not only because I got to film a game at NRG Stadium in Houston, but it...
To all my juniors out there, we can all agree on this: Junior year is not a particularly "fun" year. Stress and anxiety run rampant, and this is the year when the intensity of those feeling spikes dramatically. It's not even about school, extracurricular activities, personal life, college, but rather juggling everything that's going on and how it affects...
I know this title is very aggressive and pessimistic. And to be honest, when I read it, it does seem a little hyperbolic. But I would have to say it probably is the best way to describe it. To many, it probably sounds very ironic for someone to say their fourth year of high school was the “worst.” After...
