It wasn’t your typical school field trip.

Last December, a group of Drake University students went to a place that some might say is one of the most nefarious places in the U.S., San Quentin Prison in California.

They were there to learn about life behind bars, and on Tuesday night they'll be sharing those stories in a special event at the school.

A public discussion will be held at Drake's Olmsted Center starting at 7 p.m.

During the Channel 13 News at 4, two Drake students were interviewed by Sonya Heitshusen about their trip and the event.
