Alumni have found success in many fields including media and social justice

Keeping responsible credit in college

Low interest rates, no fees and balance transfers are catch phrases that fill college students’ mail boxes every year.

Credit card companies will swamp new students with offers that sound too good to be true. According to United College Marketing Services the average college student gets 25 to 50 solicitations a semester.

Max Leonesio ’10 will be going to Princeton University, Alex Garoutte ’10 will kick at Arizona State University and Hank Jenkins ’10 is going to the University of San Diego, according to football coach Mr. Scooter Molander.

The second semester of senior year can mean a number of things.

Students maintain senior-year college visits despite increasing airfare

Across the commercial airline industry prices are jumping sky high as purse strings remain tight for many consumers.

Many people have put their personal vacations on hold, but college visits remain popular and numerous among Brophy seniors.

Throughout high school, even more so during junior and senior year, many students are increasingly focused on the prospect of college.
