THE JESUIT DALLAS STUDENT VOICE AND STUDENT NEWSPAPER SINCE 1942

In the first two weeks of summer, while most of the Jesuit community was watching its beloved Mavericks in the NBA Finals, 21 students and their three faculty chaperones geared up for something entirely different: a taste of Nicaragua. Students traded in their air-conditioners for small 6-inch fans, their beds for bunks, and their game-day burgers for rice and...
From April 6 to 10, 2011, students and faculty from Jesuit and three doctors and one social worker went to Guatemala to help the sick of the country. They worked with an organization called The Vamos Mayor in two clinics, one in Panajachel and one in Nahualá. All the teacher and students were from Jesuit’s Medical Society: science teachers Mrs. Jan Jones...

Lasting eight days this summer – from...
Last Sunday night, January 16, eleven members of the Jesuit community arrived back in Dallas after spending five days in El Paso, TX as a part of Jesuit’s second annual Border Immersion Program. Created five years ago by senior counselor Mr. Jack Fitzsimmons, the trip focuses on educating Jesuit students on what is one of today’s most pressing issues,...
Nicaragua is the poorest country in Central America, grossing only $16.6 billion dollars in 2009.  It is a place where people toil long, hard hours as farmers and menial job workers to eke out a living. But what this country lacks in economic stability, it makes up for with colorful personalities and a vibrant culture unlike any others. On November...
Sweat runs down my sand-crusted forehead, across my cheek, and finally lands in the Concrete mixture. With each shovel-full, my back winces as some Honduran boys and I move the pile of concrete to the left. I understand enough Spanish to know when the Hondurans want to move the piles and where to put things, but usually I am at...
Fifty meters above the Mindo Cloud forest, I fly through the air at 35 miles per hour, supported only by a harness and a carabineer.
