Student Spotlight – Nick Ginn ’17

Loves about Brebeuf:

I love the freedom the Brebeuf Jesuit schedule provides with PRTs. Having the ability to go talk toscreen-shot-2016-09-19-at-12-11-08-am teachers, get homework done, or use that time to have fun with intramurals is great.

I also love the openness of Brebeuf’s teachers. The amount of personal and professional time they provide to students allows us to become the best version of ourselves. 

Favorite Class:

My favorite class is Newspaper.  It is only my first semester taking the class, but I have really enjoyed it so far, and I am discovering that I have yet another interest to explore. I was just asked to be the sports editor, and I am really excited about it! 

Future Plans:

I hope to attend Miami University in Ohio or High Point University to study sports management. That will hopefully lead to a great internship and a career.  I am excited to go to college and discover what my true passion is and figuring out what I love to do.

Teams & Co-Curriculars:

Varsity Soccer
Ultimate Frisbee
Clear Lakes Ski Club
Tatum’s Bags of Fun
GISHL – Greater Indianapolis Street Hockey League
Intramural Basketball
Club Soccer in Zionsville
Newspaper Sports Section Editor

Random Fact:

My nickname is Speed – started from soccer freshman year and just stuck..  

Is Brebeuf as academically rigorous as they say?

I believe it is. Classes at Brebeuf Jesuit challenge you to do your best and it is imperative to work hard. Students are taught the importance of time management to ensure they complete their homework outside of class.  We are provided specific breaks in our schedule so that we have time to seek help, which is often needed. As an example of the workload at Brebeuf, last week, I had a sports psychology test, an AP calculus test, two articles due for Newspaper, two soccer games, an ACT test prep class, and a quiz in biotech.

Would you rather…

Eat ice cream or pizza as the only food for the rest of your life?

Pizza, because I would be able to have a number of different varieties than ice cream.

Be stuck on a broken ski lift or broken elevator?

Have to go with a ski lift – the view would be better and an elevator would get really hot.

Would you rather spend one year sailing around the world or living in the heart of London?

Sailing around the world because you would be able to see more than just living in London.

Live in Antarctica or the Sahara Desert?

Antarctica – because of the penguins.

Be known as a one-hit wonder for a novel or a song?

Song – I feel like it would be cooler to have that in my generation – if I was older, I would say a novel, as those tend to last longer than a song.
