After a late night practice her freshman year, Dani Jo Stevenson (far left) plays in the snow with her fellow MBU tennis teammates. Stevenson, who graduated in the spring, has written parting words to underclassmen and shared her wisdom as “a sentimental senior.”

Now, more than a quarter century removed from his 1993 hit, “Are You Gonna Go My Way,” Kravitz has recently delivered his 11th album, which is full of love, positivity and, of course, plenty of funky beats. And he still rocks the aviators.
