Student council executes real-world affairs within the school community. It allows individuals to represent their peers in the best way possible and to make decisions on their behalf. Not only does it entail representing their class but it...
As the label of the "new" school year fades away, the buzz on Jesuit's campus defines the tenor of the year.
