On Nov. 9, at Oakland University, more than 19,000 enrolledstudents will have their chance to question 2012's Presidential candidates first-hand at the Republican Presidential Debate, hosted by CNBC.
Many will be first-time voters in the coming election, and they're already anxious for answers.
Excitement on the Oakland campus — a liberal arts college inRochester, Mich., just outside Detroit — is tempered by serious concerns about jobs, student loans, and the economy.
"The biggest issue in my mind is jobs and what's going to happen once I graduate. I have taken student loans. Repaying them certainly concerns me," says journalism student Patrick McIntyre.
