Fairmont State students and others gathered in Colebank Hall Tuesday evening for a different kind of political debate, between activist Meghan McCain and comedian Michael Ian Black.
McCain and Black toured the country together in 2011 and then wrote a book about the experience.
Fairmont students said they were looking forward to hearing what the two discovered along the way.
"I think that this will show people how similar we are, and that no matter if you're right, left, Christian, Muslim, whatever, everybody's American and we should all think that way," said Fairmont State sophomore Sean Rafferty.
The event was open to the public.
