The Roundup is the Jesuit Dallas Student Voice and Newspaper since 1942. Learn about us.

For natives of the 21st century, the milieu of the 1950’s likely seems strange and foreign. The fastest car of the day, the Ford Thunderbird, hit maximum speeds of 75 miles per hour, low-speed by today’s standards; drivers paid a tantalizingly low 18 cents for a gallon of gasoline; and, probably most shocking of all to a present-day observer,...
This Saturday, December 3, 2011, The Roundup staff will take a trip to St. Louis to learn more about Jesuit’s role in integration history.  Payton Maher ’13, aided by English teachers Sheryl Row and Michael Degen, government teacher Fritz Asche and senior editor Clark Durham ’12, will be interviewing Charles Edmond, one of the two first black students at...
Standing firm, dressed in white and gold in front of the hundreds of berserk Jesuit fans, the Jesuit male cheerleaders play one of the most significant, underlying roles not only in the life of football games but in their own squad too. Along with the video interviews of Senior male cheerleaders Andrew Arbour '14 and Antonio Gonzalez '14, current...
On October 16, 2011, a dedication took place in Washington D.C. for the memorial of the most important civil rights leader in our nation’s history, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  King led much of the Civil Rights Movement during the 1950s and 1960s, beginning with his involvement in the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955. Dr. King’s birthday, which is celebrated...
On the opening night of the Winter One Acts, January 9th, an exhibit commemorating a legacy that dates back to the founding years of Jesuit Dallas will be unveiled. To be displayed outside the new Jesuit Theater box office, on the east side of the Lecture Hall, are six frames, each a snapshot of a decade of Jesuit Theater dating...
The entire packed auditorium at Fair Park focuses on Charles as he walks up to the stage, looking toward the principal of Jesuit High School, Fr. Michael Kammer, S.J.  Shaking his hand, Charles gazes out into the crowd of students watching him. This is not just any other night; it is the class of 1958’s graduation, a night filled...
A good teacher isn’t hard to find. A good teacher understands the class, explains course material, teaches in an effective way, and connects with students. A good teacher molds students into better versions of themselves academically and personally. And Jesuit Dallas is full of good teachers. But 12345 Inwood Road is losing a great one come June 1, 2019. After...
The average Jesuit student writes three to four research papers in his career, with each paper taking around a week of solid work. Junior Payton Maher’s series on Jesuit integration in the 1950’s, written exclusively for The Roundup, entailed a much deeper and more comprehensive research process than a garden-variety research paper. So comprehensive is his work, in fact, that...
