Joining the Roundup later in his time at Jesuit, Alex has experienced a plethora of extra curricular activities from the school outwards. His multifaceted interests led him to sing in monthly masses, compete and win in national Latin competitions, finish his Eagle Scout, direct the theater tech department, and practice martial arts for his tenth year. Also engaging in extensive charity work, Alex helped found both Heart Gift and Paper for Water, two organizations benefiting those most desperately in need. With what free time remains, Alex voraciously reads and watches films.
A large crowd forms around a table spanning the length of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Vietnamese church’s basement. Emblazoned on the table are six logos: a fish (cá), shrimp (tôm), deer (nai), crab (cua), chicken (gà), …and a squash? The entire room from young kids to seasoned adults places bets on these symbols, waiting with bated breath as...
Stepping into the MADI museum downtown, the surroundings appear more like a magic show than an art gallery. Loud, bold artwork explodes from every hidden crevice (even the restrooms). Young kids and adults alike play with shapes and create unique art on tablets adjacent to fifty-year-old art. Critics pace back and forth before each frame, gasping with shock before...
A microscopic piece of machinery injected into someone burrows through layers of skin and cells to reach the very essence of humanity: our DNA. This perfectly crafted tool slices through segments of the DNA or even adds on additional pieces to suit the user's need.

The one thing we pay the least attention to daily is a door. Either rushing forward to grab one or slamming it angrily behind us, doors captivate attention for only microseconds before we turn towards far more important things. The vast majority of Jesuit’s doors are unadorned, providing a very bland sight for us to pass by every day....
Hulu? HBO? Amazon Instant? Any online instant streaming service pales in comparison to the mammoth Netflix. As of October, the company boasts an impressive 69,170,000 subscribers worldwide, 43 million in the US alone. Snagging nine Golden Globe nominations for original shows and films alone, Netflix proves time and time again their superiority in the competitive market. Established in 1997 by...
Fredrick Douglas. Helen Keller. Caesar Chavez. What do these people have in common? All of them overcame hardships and difficulties to bring a message to the world. Paul McCormack represents the contemporary example of this brave heroism, devoting his entire life to the service of others despite the personal costs. He is the last man out, the last man...
The first place ribbon your freshman homeroom won at Ranger Day. The homecoming garter you kept from your sophomore and junior homecoming dances. The smooth rock from your Senior Kairos retreat, symbolizing the steadfast foundation Jesuit has provided the past four years. The Letterman jacket proudly displaying all your proudest achievements on a simple blue and gold textile. These...
A pair of deserted felt loafers. A firefighter's helmet. A rusty police badge. A cap soaked with murky dust. Warped steel fragments twisting upwards. These objects appear commonplace, scattered haphazardly around New York City. Within their tattered exteriors lie an abundance of memories, frozen in time behind display cases. On Friday September 11th, 2015, several retired first responders and close...
