I am a second year at Sarah Lawrence College named Kyle Nicholas.  This blog will be focusing on the topic of the NSA revelations brought to light by Edward Snowden last Summer.  I will be looking into how college undergraduates feel about this topic.  Over the course of this semester I will be looking into articles found through Twitter and other social media platforms.  I will be conducting a survey to analyze other’s views on the NSA and their use of the internet.  At the end of the semester I will be bringing together this research and opinions of the NSA issue and present my findings to the subjective question of; How do college undergraduates feel about this topic?
