Alex enjoys the mental stimulation that stems from an academic challenge. You can find him in the library vigorously mashing the keys on a keyboard while writing a paper. As a baseball enthusiast, he attentively streamlines Major League Baseball news and frequently attends games, longing for the crisp pop of the ball as it pounds the glove while watching his personal favorite team, the Texas Rangers. Alex is also an aviation aficionado. He strolls through the airport terminal, longingly gazing out the bright window as an airplane lifts from the ground and soars into the sky. He plans to attend Emory University in the fall and impact the airline industry through a future career at Southwest Airlines. But, perhaps most importantly, he writes.
Airlines, common outposts of casual banter, are no stranger to the ire of travelers. In a world post-2008, when airlines introduced a slew of ancillary fees, such as baggage and change fees to augment their quickly sinking revenues, scrutinizing the performance of airlines seems almost ingrained in our beings. The Airline Quality Index, calculated by researchers at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical...
On December 9, American Airlines sealed its merger with US Airways, amassing the largest airline in both the United States and in the world.

With 2014 now already days old, many begin to peruse their resolution lists, viewing the new year as an opportunity to improve,...
Stepping into Cypress Creek High School before Spring Break this year will surely prove to be a dangerous venture. From March 6-8, 2014, approximately 130 debate teams will swarm the school that is just minutes from Houston, to compete in the annual TFA State Debate Tournament. These teams, needing to obtain twelve qualifying points during their seasons to earn...
A time of curiosity, a time of discovery, and, most of all, a time of growth, the life of a high-school student is not one of contentment. Foraging through the hallways, students explore various academic fields during their fleeting four years before college and interact with their peers, forming lasting relationships. And, oftentimes, students discover a little bit more about...
The boxer crawls onto the mat; through the taut ropes surrounding the mat he goes, preparing himself for the duel. His pair of gloves affixed to his hands, his eyes locked on those of his opponent, menacingly glaring across the mat, he readies for the ensuing spar. The verbal spar, that is.   On October 12, 2013, a trio of Jesuit’s...
To engage or not to engage? That is the question.   Via a poll recently posted on our site, we, “The Roundup” staff, relayed to you, the student body, a question posed to debaters across the country: whether or not the United States should economically engage Mexico, Cuba, and Venezuela.
