Edward Snowden is Coming to OSU (…via satellite)

Yesterday the Ohio Union Activities Board announced that NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden will be joining students and staff via video chat in an event hosted by the Ohio Union.

“Breaking the Silence with Edward Snowden” has been in the planning stages for a year.

“We just think the topic of cybersecurity and privacy is a really pertinent topic, especially right now with the election going on and the recent Apple scandal,” Zach Miglich, OUAB lectures chair said.

The questions and moderate have not been announced yet but there will be audience questions.

The event is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 30 in the Ohio Union Performance Hall. Tickets will released on Monday at 5 p.m. at the Ohio Union Information Desk. Tickets are free and one ticket is available per Buck-ID. If there are enough tickets, admission will open up to students from satellite campuses and faculty.
