ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Students, teachers and other voters gathered at Darton State College on Monday.

Dozens of students crammed into a room at Darton State College Student Center to watch the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton.

It seemed like every 15 minutes, students would gasp, laugh or even clap as the candidates took jabs at each other.

Going into the debate, most students expected for both candidates to play political games.

But many were looking for concrete answers.

For Junior Clint Etheredge, Trump supporter, says such games were seen more with Clinton.

And For Sophomore Pedro Smith, a Clinton supporter, says both candidates dodged the questions.

"Donald trump when he would use pretty much stated facts to say this is what we know to be true about her character about what happened where should would call and say some things that had some fact but weren't exactly true for the most part," said Etheredge.

"To me personally I think this election is an insult to our generation because we have two children as presidential candidates but we know as far racism they didn't really cover the issue. I mean Hilary Clinton did the best she could and Donald trump just lied," said Smith.

Students expect to hear more from the candidates in future debates.
