Political science students at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi gathered Tuesday night to watch the president's State of the Union speech. 3News stopped by to hear what they thought.

"It's definitely thought provoking," student Miles McKinnon said. "Especially with the minimum wage and the new immigration policy that he is trying to throw in."

The students were enrolled in Ron Edere's state and local government class. The professor said that hearing Tuesday night's speech was an excellent opportunity to learn from history in the making.
