Michael Amadeus Miramontes, a dashing yet clever fellow, lives in Allen, Texas. Prior to Jesuit, he attended an Allen public middle school. Aside from The Roundup, Michael is the president of Interact, Vice President of JCL, 2-Time Allstate Musician for his beloved instrument, the clarinet, and likewise plays in the Jesuit-Ursuline-Ranger-Band. He's also heavily involved in his parish, and makes Quizlets that are renowned by many. If you see Michael in the hallways, don't forget to give him a strong High-Five.
One of the most integral components of the Jesuit experience is the brotherhood experienced by every student. There are classes filled with male students making flatulent jokes, lunches with boys bragging about their Fortnite wins, hallways packed with guys fighting their way through to get to their next class. “Being an all-guys school really changes the game for students....

12:47, the clock reads. Your eyelids are faltering, exhausted from the hours you’ve spent studying for your math test tomorrow. Even after spending countless minutes going over the difference between the cosine and sine functions, you still manage to get the practice problems wrong, all the while your looming theology homework sits to the side, untouched, meaning that tonight is...
        It’s August. The first day of school has finally arrived. Jesuit students get to see all of their friends again and get back into the grind of things.

The unsung superheroes that don’t wear capes. The lifesavers. Those people that feed me. Whatever you may call them, parents play an incredible role in our lives both in the spotlight and behind the scenes, capable of making our lunch one moment and helping us wash our clothes in the next. Parents are our first...
On. Off. On. Off. The flickering lights of the theater rapidly switch on and off, repeatedly shedding light on the intricate American Flag-painted stage before replacing it with darkness.
