In a 2005 essay published in Scotland’s The Sunday Herald, the great late author Kurt Vonnegut once wrote, “No matter how corrupt, greedy, and heartless our government, our corporations, our media, and our religious and charitable institutions may become, the music will still be wonderful.”
We here at The Roundup recognize that while events like the Occupy Protests or school drama are unfolding, the music will always be, as Vonnegut said, wonderful. That’s why we’re happy to unveil the expansion of our music coverage into “The Bronco Beat.”

For the students in Mr. Mica Mulloy’s ’99 Journalism I class, things can seem quite daunting.
Introduction to the writing styles of journalism is a new experience for many, and there are a lot of pressures that spawn from the “hit the ground running” mentality that The Roundup has.
The Roundup staff consists of two groups of students that meet during the same class period. First year students make up the Journalism I class and second year students make up the Photojournalism course.

The Roundup recently received an anonymous letter to the editor about the behavior of several Brophy students at a restaurant one afternoon.
For reasons outlined in our Commenting Policy, we were unable to publish the letter online or in the monthly print edition.
We do not publish anonymous letters because we require the author’s information to verify all information in the letter. We do so to make sure the letter is truthful and objective.
In The Roundup’s October edition there was an article on Danny Riggs ’11, a defensive end on the football team.
I took the photo of Riggs to accompany the article.
Normally a general rule for photos in The Roundup is that we use candid photos that are not setup or posed.
Every month, the staff of The Roundup takes pride in seeing the new edition spread throughout the Brophy community.
More often than not, students will immediately flip over to the back page, home of the “Words from the Wise.” This is a column that is intended to be funny, topical, pertinent or thought provoking.
It’s no secret that people like funny quotes the most, and we occasionally hear rumblings of a desire for “more funny.”

Throughout the Brophy community there breathes a multitude of idiosyncrasies that illustrates the ‘soul’ we are all a part of.
Between the diversity students and faculty all contribute to and the traditions that pulse year after year, the “Soul of Brophy” makes known all of these characteristics and more importantly answers our underlining question: What makes Brophy “Brophy?”
