Where students spend hours driving up and down one-lane roads on the sides of mountains, fearing each bump as if the truck is going to tip over. Where each day is spent with 6-10 hours in a clinic, tending to the needs of...
Practice. Repeat. Exercise. Repeat. More Practice. Familiar to most, to become great at something requires dedication, hard work, time, and effort. Jesuit students particularly are aware of this, for most athletic practices of any sport consist of repeating drills and plays over and over, and then learning something new to be repeated. It’s this type of determination that creates...
“'Maybe,' I figgered, 'maybe it's all men an' all women we love; maybe that's the Holy Sperit-the human sperit-the whole shebang. Maybe all men got one big soul ever'body's a part of.'

Tap, tap, tap. Reverberating across the field, the beat of the drum echoes throughout the entire ensemble, their feet imitating the staccato pulses. Each student intently focused on staying in form, keeping their upper bodies as still as a statue while their lower bodies move in sequence. From their first rehearsal 3 months ago, to their most recent rehearsal...
