THE JESUIT DALLAS STUDENT VOICE AND STUDENT NEWSPAPER SINCE 1942

JesuitRoundup.org is brought to you by:

I've found it. No, not just the best burrito in the world, but also, heaven, my friends – heaven. In burrito form, that is. And you'll see me with no other burrito in my hands than one from Chipotle, the pinnacle of burrito excellence. Some argue that another burrito establishment, Qdoba, surpasses Chipotle's burrito quality in that they provide the...

Qdoba Wins

For all those out there who favor Chipotle’s burrito over Qdoba’s there can be only one excuse: they’ve never tried Qdoba. In my opinion Qdoba’s masterpiece beats Chipotle’s in every way. Whether it’s the choice of ingredients available – Qudoba has 2 more starting meat options than Chipotle, counting the vegetarian option – or their ability to wrap the giant...
Crack! The 34.5 inch, 33 ounce brown wood bat connected with the small white ball blur, catapulting the baseball way over the centerfield wall, the sound reverberating throughout the venerable Yankee Stadium. Josh Hamilton’s 28th homerun in the first round of the 2008 Home Run Derby set the record for the most homeruns ever hit in a round, a...
For several weeks of Fall 2011 The Roundup has had a poll in the bottom corner of its main page asking you, our readers, which music album you were anticipating the most this year.

Certainly, Eminem was the first white rapper since the renowned Beastie Boys to reap the benefits of sales and respect from the hip-hop world, but his impact surely transcended this imprisoning distinction.  When...
Documentary Review Since 1987, the cable network A&E has run the popular “Biography” series, exploring the history of American companies and personalities. One such documentary chronicles the improbable rise of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream business, from its humble beginnings to its eventual financial success. The director first takes us to the childhood of Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, eventual...
Book Review: Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell Marcus Luttrell had a decision to make, one that would turn into the most regretful decision of his life. While on a reconnaissance mission scouting an Afghan mountain village that was known to harbor Taliban and Al-Qaeda leaders, Marcus Luttrell, a Navy SEAL, and his three SEAL teammates encountered two Afghani shepherds and...
St. Vincent’s front woman is nothing typical. Hailing from the Dallas area, the beautiful Annie Clark has opened for a handful of legendary acts including Television, Arcade Fire, and Grizzly Bear. She even worked with Bon Iver on a pretty cool track for the maybe not so cool film, New Moon (2009). Though she’s far from reaching the household...
