Tips on Presenting a Poster

Hints on preparing posters:

Pictures are better than text
If you have a lot to say, use bullets and schematics instead of full sentences
Keep font size big and font simple
Don’t try to be too cute

Poster template: 36X36_template
If you choose to use another size template, it must be no larger than 36″ wide (vertically oriented)

Poster examples
History poster: Oscar Lewis and Poverty poster
Chemistry poster: VSV Poster
Note that a poster larger than 36 X 36 must be oriented vertically for Research Day!

To have URECA pay for your poster printing, send a 36 X 36 poster in pdf format (print to pdf from PowerPoint) to copies@nullwfu.edu with the subject line “Poster to print for Fall 2017 Research Day“. Don’t wait until the last minute to print your poster; you should plan to have it printed early in the week.
