How to make a presentation more interesting?

So I'm giving a presentation to high school students about my experiences so far as a freshman in college, what I'm majoring in, and why I chose the college I'm going to. I have to talk for thirty minutes, but I'm really struggling to figure out how to make this talk more interesting! One thing I hate is attending a presentation where the speaker is really boring, and I'm trying to stray away from doing that, but I'm having trouble of thinking of ways to make what I'm talking about more interesting for the students! Help?

Famous professors. History of college, but only if interesting. Land-grant? ROTC? Graduate schools? Size of campus... More

Tell your story. Illustrate it with images, if possible. Talk and engage you audience; the slides are your backup, not the main thing. I recommend you riff on Guy Kawasakis' tips for sales pitches - you are 'selling' your experience: you have to break it down for your audience
