No seniors should miss Kairos opportunity
The Issue: Some students don’t seriously consider Kairos until it’s too late. Our Stance: Juniors and seniors should be proactive so they don’t miss the opportunity.   The first memorable high school moment most Brophy students have is the freshman retreat. It is the first time a student is able to bond with his peers, creating a threshold for the theme of brotherhood. Brotherhood is the main reason why students…

THE ROUNDUP

It is that time of the year again: Classes are starting to wind down, finals draw closer and pre-summer excitement surmounts the student body.

Seniors anticipate graduation and the prospect of college in the coming months, while other students prepare to rise in the ranks.

Study measures faith changes between senior, freshman years

Brophy prides itself on being the only Jesuit high school in Arizona since 1928 and on providing the impetus for spiritual growth in accordance with Jesuit ideals.

In a survey by The Roundup, in conjunction with Mr. Tim Sanford’s statistics class, 21 percent of the 70 seniors asked said their religious beliefs had changed from freshman to senior year.

Meanwhile, when 70 freshmen were asked the same question in March, 14 percent stated that their religious beliefs had already changed.

Students question in state or out for college

Every year at this time the thought that is on every senior’s mind is “where am I going to college?”

This year Brophy’s seniors are heading to a variety of schools in each of the four corners of the country.

But do students seem to prefer out of state schools over the institutions that are here in Arizona?

Bryan Saba ’10 is one of many students who will be attending an out-of-state school as he heads to Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.

Tuition increases in Arizona again

Staying in state for college might not be the bargain it once was.
The Arizona Board of Regents approved a sharp tuition hike ranging from 15.7 to 20.4 percent at all three in-state public universities.
At Arizona State University alone, state funding has been cut by 26 percent or $104 million since 2008, according to ASU News, while the University of Arizona has seen cuts of $100 million in state funds.

Senior year in danger of destruction due to delinquency

Underclassmen, have you looked forward to becoming a senior and wielding ultimate authority over those younger than you?

You may never get the chance.

Those who have happened to read the New York Times magazine lately or seen the relevant article will already know what I’m talking about – consideration has been given to the erasure of senior year.
