It's nighttime and the city lights dimly illuminate the mountains as the plane descends.  Rushing through Customs, the officer stamps the student's passport to mark the beginning of their international journey.  For seven days over Thanksgiving break, eleven adventuresome Jesuit students embarked on an exchange trip to Guadalajara, Mexico for the first time in nearly a decade. In Guadalajara,...
Empathy is a theme that has been emphasized at Jesuit this year, and a push for empathy between teachers and students seems to have been an effect of that. Two weeks ago, the faculty built empathy with seniors by visiting their service sites for a few hours. Instead of attending morning classes, each Wednesday seniors leave campus to serve the...
A throat grotesquely scarred by an 8-inch knife gash, scraggly white and tan fur singed by the blazes of an arson house fire, and tattered paws cut by the jagged streets she ambled on perpetually. For this precious pooch - appropriately deemed by her saviors as Khaleesi, a spirited character in the hit drama Game of Thrones - the...

After the Seniors marched in, Mr. Garrison stepped on stage and called the congregation to worship, thus inaugurating the Senior Convocation of 2017. The...
Jesuit students, huddled around tables, filling bags with the sustenance of life, prepared 87,000 meals for hungry children in Zambia. 87,000 of anything is an enormous amount, but to have 87,000 meals, packaged by hand in one day, is a major accomplishment, an accomplishment which will feed 761 orphans for an entire year. This massive event served as the junior...
The trip where students are forced to carry 49 pounds of (medical) drugs through foreign airports. Where students spend hours driving up and down one-lane roads on the sides of mountains, fearing each bump as if the truck is going to tip over. Where each day is spent with 6-10 hours in a clinic, tending to the needs of...
