JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jobs, emails, race relations and police shootings were some of the top issues in Monday night's Presidential Debate and on Jackson State University's campus. 

A packed room of students at JSU held a panel discussion before listening to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump try to convince voters who should lead this country for the next four years.          

"To say a whole bunch of crazy things," said Tamarcus Lott, a JSU senior. "A whole bunch of attacks and a whole bunch of outlandish things to distract your minds from the actual issues and implementing an actual policy."

"I feel like both candidates are prepared, both candidates are coming strong with their opinions and with their answers," said sophomore Gabrielle Baker. "But another thing I would really love to see is respect."

Students say they wanted to hear more on immigration, black on black crime, the war on terror, funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and equal pay.
