History and Future

The Vista Magazine‘s past has yet to be created. The magazine began in the fall semester of the 2017-2018 academic year as a way to expand the sharing of student opinions and thought on campus. The name Vista translates to view or perspective, honoring the vision for the magazine to be a space for student thought and dialogue. Vista Magazine runs on SGA funding and accepts article submissions from any student who wishes their works to be published.

Vista hopes to remain an active publication through many years at North Park University. As Vista grows with the student body, the magazine aspires to become a daily online publication, bringing student written works to students every day of the week. The magazine also prints exclusive, paper magazines and hopes to continue the long-standing tradition of printed media.
