Finals got you down? Don’t worry, there’s a lot to look forward to next semester

AJ Bower
Prom is an exciting event that students look forward to during second semester.

I know with finals coming up I’m feeling burnt out and lacking motivation. If you’re like me, don’t worry, there is much to look forward to as the second semester rolls around.

Students competing in winter sports are wrapping up their season and starting an exciting time in playoffs, which begin the week of February 27th.

Quickly following the ending of winter sports, spring sports ramp up including the dominant Jesuit Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse teams, looking to add another state championship title to their name, both coming off back to back state championships.

Jesuit looks to continue their success in baseball, after being runner ups in state last season.

Jesuit softball hopes to bounce back after last season and claim a Metro title, as well as a state championship. Track and field is hoping to find success in the Twilight relays, Metro, and district meets.

Whether competing or bringing support from the stands there’s lots of ways to get involved in athletics second semester.

Jesuit’s theater program has two exciting productions coming up in the second semester. The production Big Fish will play February 22nd- March 3rd, and Shakespeare in Love will play April 25th-28th. Both productions are a great way to get involved and support Jesuit’s theater program through participating in the plays or going out and supporting your friends.

Choir has three major concerts coming up in the second semester including their big Metro League Festival on April 6th.

Winter dance, Sader, and Prom are all happening next semester. Spring dances are an exciting time at Jesuit and all are encouraged to come. Although prom is only juniors and seniors, Sader is an exciting dance that everyone can participate in.

Lastly there are many clubs and activities to get involved in second semester. Along with the wide range of clubs Jesuit has its annual Social Justice week, which is a time that the Jesuit community focuses on issues around justice/injustices, DEI, human dignity, identity and more.

Although it may seem like a stressful time with finals, there is much to look forward to before summer break. Getting involved in the Jesuit community is a great way to stay motivated and feel the excitement around the Jesuit community.
