Trojan Focus

By Sword & Shield

Sword & Shield’s official podcast, Trojan Focus, offers a platform for students to focus on themselves in a way that encourages community in our school. Interviewing people from the school, including students and staff, Trojan Focus will aim to collectivize the voices of University High School. By focusing on a specific topic for each episode, we hope to achieve one of these four goals: familiarize students with normal life on campus, showcase a student or staff member, bring attention to an upcoming event, and/or help students in general.
