Create a Poster

Your first choice for help with creating your poster/presentation should be your faculty mentor. Posters are usually created in MS Powerpoint and converted to Adobe pdf for printing. Stop by 301 Bunnell to see a variety of poster styles displayed in the hallway. Sample posters can be downloaded here and here.

There are numerous poster templates available online for free. Here are some of the many examples available:
