Music abounds in our spring issue. International rock star Don Henley finds harmony with nature, a Weather Channel meteorologist raps about snow and a saintly Peruvian opera star leads tours on campus while a young entrepreneur makes his business hum.

Check out photos of the fun from the Mean Green's 2003 trip to the New Orleans Bowl — its third in a row. And enjoy photos from the February gala commemorating the 50th anniversary of the admission of the first African American student at North Texas. Look for stories of desegregation and the progress made since in the summer North Texan.
