The whole rugby locker room shakes before the game.  With music blaring, players shouting, and rugby balls flying around, the team feeds off of each other's focused energy before walking out on the field.  As kickoff approaches, the starting 15 binds in a circle under their defending goal post, surrounding their captain, Eric Miller.  Miller leads the team in a prayer, offers...
Solemnly silent, the group of 51 students waits for the chaplain to speak. "The response is: Blessed be the Lord, my rock." The team responds in unison, "Blessed be the Lord, my rock." This is not a special occasion or public display; this is the Jesuit football team sharing a prayer in their locker room, minutes before kickoff. One of...
When you look at Jesuit from an athletic point of view, you're likely first confronted with large programs such as football (8-4 on the season; playoff berth), baseball (36-8-2; championship win), lacrosse (14-2; championship win), or crew (quarterfinal berth at Henley Regatta).

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” these iconic lines ran through my head as I walked into the Xavier High School entryway, shivering from the biting New York cold. On its surface, Xavier appears nothing like Jesuit, each space optimized to serve countless functions, missing the sprawling athletic fields characteristic of 12345 Inwood Road....
In no other place can racism project itself across so many people’s minds. Movies captivate young and old, man and woman, black and white. Viewed by millions upon millions and telling a wide variety of stories, movies have passed on the ideologies of their makers or the stereotypes of peoples, inadvertently or not, throughout history. In this way, movies...
Without paying careful attention, you can walk right past the America media headquarters on West 56th Street. The nameplate, worn and faded through years of exposure to weather, blends seamlessly into the charcoal entryway. Who knew that a doorway so humble would hold within it the creative engine behind one of the most popular magazines in the media capital...
