NDSU Powerpoint templates (available for download below) have been designed to provide great-looking presentations, while making your life easier. Commonly used slides are already made for you within each template. The templates have been designed to be consistent with NDSU's image, and they may be downloaded for use in any university presentation.
Follow these suggestions to create eye-catching presentations that maintain NDSU’s image.
For consistency, it's best not to change the layout, colors or typefaces. Please do not move or modify the logo or other placed graphics.
A minimal use of animation effects is strongly encouraged as they can be distracting.
Try to keep the size of the type as shown in the templates.
Save photos at a resolution of 72 dpi (dots per inch) before importing into your presentation. This will avoid creating an unnecessarily large file and slowing the slideshow.
