While 2020 hasn't been a great year for humanity, it has been great for meme-makers. The memes and group chats have become top-tier distractions from the crippling loneliness of quarantine. Scrolling through my favorite sites for online content got me thinking: Why don't I help pass some time by talking about some of the people you'll most likely see...
Whenever you think of shows to watch on Netflix, the two most common shows that come up are The Office and Parks and Rec, both produced by legendary TV producer Micheal Schur. The man is a genius for creating both of these incredible, thought-provoking shows. But, which one is better? Now, I personally have watched each show around two times...
Quarantine is starting to feel eternal. As the virus approaches its peak, my friends and I have begun to play videogames as a pastime. Video games are a way to connect without actually being around others. We play games such as the new Call of Duty, Fortnite, Rainbow Six Siege.

Dogs can warm even the coldest, most pessimistic heart, and that's something I and many of my peers could use now. Here are some of The Roundup Staff's canine...
I know this title is very aggressive and pessimistic. And to be honest, when I read it, it does seem a little hyperbolic. But I would have to say it probably is the best way to describe it. To many, it probably sounds very ironic for someone to say their fourth year of high school was the “worst.” After...
At Jesuit, sports are a significant part of lives where we strive to push our physical capabilities beyond their thresholds. To help our bodies prepare, we retreat to the weight rooms and gyms to add more resistance and to challenge our bodies further than the field, pool, or track can provide. As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, athletes who...
