Some of the newest students on the CSU campus were born the year two airliners flew into the World Trade Center in New York City on Sept. 11. Is the country safer now than it was in 2001?

Greg Myre, national security correspondent for National Public Radio, will be on campus Sept. 17 to discuss that very question and the current state of national security.

Myre, who has covered counter-terrorism in the United States, the Middle East and other countries around the world, will speak at 4 p.m. in the Cherokee Park Ballroom in the Lory Student Center. The event is free and open to the public; no tickets or preregistration required.

He will talk about the many measures that have been put in place in an effort to make the U.S. safer and their outcomes. What are the threats we really need to worry about today?

Myre’s visit is sponsored by the Office of International Programs and the Department of Journalism and Media Communications.
