THE JESUIT DALLAS STUDENT VOICE AND STUDENT NEWSPAPER SINCE 1942

JesuitRoundup.org is brought to you by:

Walking through the magnificent hallways of a 225-year-old building. Every footstep, every word uttered, every sound made echoes through the corridors. In this place, 327.5 million people’s lives are debated upon every day and every decision is decided by 535 people.  This is the United States Capitol building, home of Congress. Every two years, all 435 House Representatives, ⅓...
The Time is Now: Seventeen lives were lost on Valentines Day in Parkland, Florida where a shooter went inside the school unopposed and was later pinned down by the police. What happened in Florida is another case of the many mass shootings that have occurred in our country. The United States has a long and systematic pattern of gun violence that shows...
As people are still recovering from the polarized election of 2016, it may be shocking that elections are again on the horizon. If you do not vote in these midterm elections, you will not be in the minority.

While this article is not necessarily a response in the sense of...
In the most expensive senate race in the history of America up to this point, incumbent Florida Senator  Democrat Bill Nelson faces off with former governor, Republican Rick Scott. 181 million dollars and counting has been spent by both sides, and the next closest race in terms of money spent is in our state of Texas, where Beto O’Rourke...
As the recent election fades away, it seems many political pundits are focusing on the various voting blocs that played a role in ensuring President Obama’s victory in the battleground states, blocs such as the Gray Panthers and the Lunchbox Democrats. With all this talk about voting blocs, it’s interesting to take a look at the Jesuit Dallas student voting...
