What were you doing for the first two weeks of August? Sleeping? Sitting by the pool? Watching TV? Playing video games? Well, I bet you weren't marching outside in the one hundred degree heat. Unless, of course, you are a member of the Jesuit Ursuline Ranger Band, also known as JURB. JURB recently finished yet another session of band camp,...

While most students at Jesuit and Ursuline are enjoying their last days of summer at pool parties or at the beach, over eighty dedicated students from both schools started their school year on August 3rd for the first day of Band Camp for the Jesuit-Ursuline-Ranger-Band, or JURB. “Band camp is definitely one of those big mysteries that a lot of...
On Thursday March 23, 2017, The Jesuit Dallas Museum hosted its very first Disney-themed art exhibition, located in the traditional library.
