College students get involved in political issues
Reports show that 40 percent of youth are siding with Mitt Romney. They were one of the main groups behind President Obama's win in 2008.
Students at Hastings College are being pushed to get involved in this year's election.
One way they're doing it is by hosting their very own in-class debates.
Students debate on the U.S. federal government's policies as it pertains to infrastructure.
They debate as if they were in the political arena. No questions given before hand, no preparation, just common knowledge on national issues.
Here's what one debater has to say about tonight's debate.
"I'm always interested in seeing when the candidates get the questions if they actually answer the question that they're given or if they talk around it in a very politician style," said Sierra Walker.
For the October 16th debate at Hofstra University in New York, there will be a debate watch at the Student Union on the Hastings College campus.
Students and community members are encouraged to take part and discuss the presidential debate afterwards.
