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

All Jesuit students know the feeling of anticipation as they shuffle through their mail during the spring of their 8th grade year.

It's hard to imagine a more stressful process for these hopeful young teens, and...
On December 18, 2019, Branson Hickman and E.J. Smith signed their letters of intent to play Division I football at SMU and Stanford, respectively. Soon, players of all sports will soon continue to compete at the next level of American athletics: college sports. Roughly 7% of high school athletes make it into college sports. Around 2% play at the...

Cooler weather in Texas often means that the majority of fish will likely be caught...

Have you ever wondered what it means and where it comes from? In this article I’m going to tackle what gringo means, its story, and how to prevent getting this contagious disease. Where does it...
I think this game has become too much of a trend and meme to ignore. While Fortnite: Battle Royale has only been out for a few months, it has taken Jesuit Dallas by storm. Everywhere I go, I hear people talking about Fortnite, watching Fortnite videos, criticizing Fortnite, and even playing Fortnite through school and during free periods. It’s...
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...
