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. Finished posters are usually 2 x 3 feet or 3 x 4 feet in size, either portrait or landscape. Posters with dark backgrounds are more expensive to print than posters with light backgrounds.

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

Graduate and Post-Doctoral Students

Due to space constraints, we cannot accommodate graduate and post-doctoral posters on Research Day.
