The Class of 2018 has made it. Many of us have excelled in sports, academics, and service. Ignatian education has formed us into well-rounded individuals ready to take on the world. Students with various talents will continue their passions and aspirations entering college. We have worked hard to mirror the ideal example of what it means to be "Men...
College is not just expensive; it is ridiculously expensive. The price of attending college, particularly four-year private institutions (with emphasis on the elite schools like Harvard, Princeton, Yale and so on) and out-of-state public institutions, is outpacing both the average American family’s income and inflation. In fact, Gordon Wadsworth, President of Financial Aid Information Services at Moody Publishers, points...
On October 27th, the Jesuit exchange program began the 2018-2019 Italian exchange program. On this night, 12 Italian students from the Istituto Leone XIII, a coed Jesuit school in Milan, finished their long 13 hour journey with one layover in Dallas.

I...

Methodology To conduct this poll in a method that avoided potential and probable skews, I decided to get 20 students from each of the four grade levels; and in...
Whenever I approach one of my parents' friends, I brace myself for an interrogation. They always ask one of two things: where do you want to go to school, or what will your major be? To me, the latter of the two is more pressing because the first question is probably a bit easier for most seniors to answer...
3 am.  Sweat dripping down his face, a hard-working Junior labors away at another physics problem set.  Eyes dilated, face winced, he looks with existential dread at the unread pages of the Iliad.  Quiz? Test? Essay? Homework?  For many, sacrificing sleep is simply the price one pays for academic success.  Surely there had to be a better way? Meet Will...
