Presentations

Presentations can be nerve-racking at times.  The best way to prepare and build confidence for a presentation is to practice.  Use a variety of audiences to help you get ready for your presentation, such as your friends, roommates, family, pets, or the Presentation Center.  Make sure you practice the presentation the same way you will present it by showing your slides and practicing what you will say.
