Purdue Alumnus and C-SPAN founder Brian Lamb will be leading a discussion that is free and open to the public next Tuesday, Feb. 28, according to a Purdue news release.

At the forum, Lamb will be speaking about the media, politics and the presidential election that is coming up later this year.

There will be two Purdue classes at the event that Lamb will be leading in discussion – a communication class, and a political science class.

Quick facts about the event:

  • FREE and open to the public (on a first come, first serve basis)
  • Will be held in Lawson Computer Science Building, Room 1142
  • 9 – 10:15 a.m.
  • A continental breakfast will be available
  • The event will be live streamed on ITaP’s website

Live streaming the event is a great idea. I’m really pleased to see ITaP doing that.

I wish ITaP would live stream more events like this. I realize that it is expensive to do so, but it would be very helpful for those who cannot attend.

The event is being called “Master Class With Brian Lamb”, which seems fitting because Lamb will be the guest speaker for the two College of Liberal Arts classes at the event.

More in-depth information about Lamb and the event itself can be found in this article on Purdue’s University News Service website.

I really wish I could attend this event! But sadly, I have class during the whole duration.

I strongly encourage anyone who is interested to go to this event!

Are you going to attend this event? If so, please leave me a comment letting me know what your thoughts are about it!
