Submitting Posters for Printing

Posters can be printed at the Juniata printshop (http://www.juniata.edu/services/printshop/) for meetings at a cost of $1.00/square foot if charged to a Juniata account (cash orders are $1.50/sq ft). The maximum size is 40 in x 50 in.

Procedure:
1. Create your poster in the program of choice (many use powerpoint). Include your name in the file name. (example: JKeeney LAS2010)
2. Use one of these two logos on your poster: Leaf OR Leaf with "think, evolve, act"
3. Create a folder for the lab in the print shop drop box (P:\PrintShop\Drop Box). Submit a work order with the print shop (http://www.juniata.edu/services/printshop/workorder/?ticket=ST-83457-4mXSFlywdS9ekDPGfcru-cas)
4. Convert your poster file to a PDF file.
5. Drag and drop your poster file to the drop box. Do not copy using "save as". (For unknown reasons, it causes problems.)
6. Leave ample time for poster printing. Ideally, you should have the files in the drop box one week prior to when they are needed.

Note: Files with large embedded images (for example, from the confocal scope) will be large and may not print. You can try compressing the photographs, or print the poster leaving space for images, and attach printed images after poster is printed.

Guidelines for pre-req exemptions for BI106 or BI207:

BI106: pre-reqs are CH105 and BI105.
Students with a WP, WF or F in one of these in the fall can’t sign up for BI106 the following fall. 

If a student withdrew passing (WP) from CH105 and got a C or better in BI105, the student can request to be signed in to BI106 to be taken concurrently with CH105. BI207 must be delayed until after they pass BI106 and CH 232.

 BI207:  pre-reqs are BI106, CH106 and CH232. (Students register for BI207 while in CH106).

Students that withdrawal from or fail CH106 in the spring semester are pulled from the BI207 roster.
Students that withdrawal from or fail BI106 or CH232 in the fall semester are pulled from the BI207 roster.

If a student had a WP in CH106 and gets a C or better in BI106 and CH232, the chair of biology will consider signing an exemption for for BI207 during drop-add.
