How should I prepare for the Collegiate Review?

Like the Honors Review, the Collegiate Review presentation of the project should be 20-40 minutes with time after that for questions. The Honors Review presentation will probably need to be revised, if not completely rewritten, with a broader audience in mind before it is given for the largely nonspecialist audience. You should prepare your presentation for the Collegiate Review Committee with the assumption that not everyone will have read or understood the project thoroughly. This is a good rule of thumb for most presentations; however, it is particularly true for the Collegiate Review, because, since this review is a public presentation, some people may attend who have not received any written documentation of your work. And, since the Collegiate Review is a public presentation, others may attend as well. It is a good idea to practice this presentation at least once for your director, preferably in the room in which you will be giving your presentation. You should also make sure that you bring a copy of the Collegiate Review Committee form, with the top half completed, to the presentation. This form should be given to the ASC representative, so that it can be used to record the Collegiate Review Committee’s decision about your project.
