Impressions is the present rendition of a DSU student literary arts magazine. DSU previously published Voices, a student literary magazine, and The Dickinson Review, a literary magazine not focused on student contributors. Student requests in 1989 led to the creation of the current publication, which has published annually since that time. Originally an extra-curricular activity, since 2005 Impressions has been a co-curricular publication in support of the Journalism and Writing Degree Programs through the Literary Publications Class. Faculty members of the Language and Literature Department have served as Advisors to the publication with Dr. Dave Solheim guiding the magazine for most of the now twenty plus years of publication.

In most recent years Impressions has been entered in the North Dakota Professional Communicators College Publication contest. Editions published in 1999, 2001, 2003, 2004, and 2008 won first prize; the editions of 2002, and 2009 placed second; the 2005 edition finished 3rd; and Impressions 2007 received an honorable mention. For several years the student editors were members of the Eta Epsilon Chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society, and the 2002 edition of the magazine placed second in the national competition. The North Dakota State Library Association has also honored Impressions as an outstanding state government publication. The magazine is archived in Stoxen Library and the State Library in Bismarck.

The editing process for the magazine includes cash prize competitions for DSU students with awards for poetry, fiction, and non-fiction writing, and photography and 2-D visual art. Funding for the printing costs and student contests has been provided through University Fees. Copies are distributed free of charge on campus.

The individual authors wholly own all future rights to material published in this magazine, and any reproduction or reprinting, in whole or in part, may be done only with their permission. The opinions and representations contained in this magazine do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the editors, university administration, or faculty.
