As Jesuit is making more technological innovations to accommodate a more modern future, they are getting rid of some of the older things such as Old Moodle. As I am writing this, incoming freshman and transfers, you may ask yourself, "There was another Moodle before this?" Short answer: Yes, there was, and there are many differences between the two...
Fried Chicken. A testament to the American dream. A staple to Sunday Night football or ravenous late night Whataburger excursions. Originally a Scottish dish, fried chicken has pervaded this nation's culture from the ground up. In the early 19th century, Southern farmers introduced the delicacy to the population as a replacement to the boring broiled norm. Infusing their culture's...
On December 18, 2019, Branson Hickman and E.J. Smith signed their letters of intent to play Division I football at SMU and Stanford, respectively. Soon, players of all sports will soon continue to compete at the next level of American athletics: college sports. Roughly 7% of high school athletes make it into college sports.

The fans scream along, absorbed in the music and unbothered by the repetition. Brockhampton's success and ability is displayed in this moment but it starkly contrasts...
Ah, pizza. Multiple mounds of melted, magnificently manufactured mozzarella shelter a circular, sweeping, savory sauce covering a curved, copious, crunchy-chewy crust. The delight of many people all around (though it originated in Naples, Italy) is so popular that many languages still call it pizza. Even the Arabic word for pizza, "بيتزا," sounds like "pizza!" In fact, what is better than...
The 2018 midterms appear to be one of the most hotly contested in modern American history. With controversial (to say the least) President Trump firmly in the reigns of the Republican Party, the Democratic base appears poised to strike a major blow against him. Trump has alienated much of his own party, causing vaunted figures such as  Jeff Flake,...
