Teams are encouraged to give a final presentation at the sponsor company’s office in addition to the presentation on Projects Day.

Giving a presentation at the sponsor’s office:

  • Gives students the experience of addressing a group of managers and answering their questions
  • Lets other co-workers and managers learn about what the liaisons have been spending their time doing
  • Increases awareness of Seattle University and the Project Center at the company, which improves chances of SU alums getting a job and of future student teams getting a project

Contact your liaisons in May about doing a presentation at their site for their supervisors. Invite the Project Center Director or the Corporate Relations Manager to the presentation to give a short introduction about the Project Center and to meet and thank the sponsor representatives.

Practice Sessions

Practice sessions will be announced at the end of May. Project Center Assistant Jorge Vargas will send an email to all project teams with instructions on how to sign up for a team practice session, in the room where you will be giving your final presentation on Projects Day.  

Team presentations are 15 minutes in length with 5 minutes between presentations for questions. The tight presentation schedule does not allow time for students to disconnect and connect to their own laptops, run demonstrations on their own laptops during their presentation, or log in and out using individual names.

Computers will be prepositioned in presentation rooms on the morning of Projects Day. Be sure to load your PC friendly PowerPoint presentation onto the desktop.
