Students at Washburn University listened intently as John McCain and Barack Obama debated for the final time before the November election.

"I'm really impressed with the crowd," said student organizer Jenny Mills.
Several students said this was their third time to watch the debates at the library and this time they wanted to see the candidates get specific. David Clark said he wanted to see the candidates actually answer the questions.

The question remains will the conversation young voters engaged in Wednesday night turn into votes on election day?

"I think they're going to vote," said history professor Alan Bearman.
