Charles Eagan, a graduate higher education student affairs student

“I do watch them occasionally. I think its smart to have debates this far out. But it does concern me that as early on that it is that it’ll either display that opinions are flexible, that we’re capable of learning and changing when new facts are presented to us. But I worry that it’ll continue to push the idea that if you’re in the public face, you’re only allowed to have one opinion.”
