1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: To live in a safe and clean environment, prices become very/too expensive. The off-campus housing nearby are mainly for very low income families. The landlords/management don't too much consider college students who are trying to make it unless they have children to support too.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's only ok if you enjoy eating the same thing over and over.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Like all schools, it's a run around. You have people who apply for aid and loans and abuse it while others trying to figure out will they ever have money for books and even if they should just drop out.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I don't eat out much.

3 College Senior

Diversity: My friends are not usually people I met at WCU.

4 College Senior

Local Area: I commute to school, commute home, study while taking care of my family, go to bed, wake up, and do it all over again. My opinion on the "nightlife" and "shopping" aspects of this school are irrelevant.

College Senior

Administration: I don't live on campus, and I am not involved in any new organizations. I'm not very noisy and I don't do drugs. I am old enough to legally consume alcohol, yet I do not do so on campus.

College Senior

Party Scene: I do not participate in the night life.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I usually love my teachers, and they love teaching. Class sizes are small. Most teachers at the Hattiesburg campus genuinely want you to do well. I have learned much.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: This may (hopefully) change, but I've had some issues with the administration. I have had trouble determining the value of a degree from WCU...but I hope it's of some value. I sure have put a massive amount of effort, time, and money into this degree.

College Senior

Athletics: I don't participate in the sports at WCU, but they seem to be a thing that people around here enjoy.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There are so many places to study on campus. From study rooms in the library to floor lounges in the dorms, you can always find peace and quiet to study. If you are a spiritual person like I am, Carey's Baptist Student Union offers weekly events for students.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are very easy to get to know. All of the classes are very small, usually less than 30. It makes it easier for the professors to know you.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: As a biology major looking to go to medical school, I had a great opportunity with my work study job. I got to work in the office of the medical school on campus. I got to know several of the secretaries in the Dean's suite.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: This school is quite diverse when it comes to students of different nationalities. There are students for all of the earth like Germany, Nepal, and many other places.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The scholarships that William Carey offers are really great. The financial aid process was easy.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience with courses and professors has been great. Everyone is really helpful. The classes are fairly small which allows our professors more time to work with students individually if they need help. The courses have been challenging, but as long as I have done my best I have finished them with A's.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The career service center on campus does a great job of making the students aware of potential job opportunities near campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: We only have one dining hall on campus. However, in that one dining hall there is always a salad bar, pizza, hamburgers, a sandwich bar, a healthy choice bar, a dessert bar, and at least two other meal options. You can eat as much as you want for the same price. I think it's $6 without a meal plan, and there are at least 3 meal plan options.

4 College Junior

Academics: The professors at William Carey are extremely nice, and they are always willing to help. The classes tend to cover a lot of material in a short period of time because we are on the trimester system. Getting registered for classes is a fairly easy process. You pick up a list of all the classes available for that trimester and decide what you are going to need to take. Then you go talk to your adviser, and they will help you get everything set up. The most popular areas of study at William Carey seem to be Religion, Nursing, Education, and Music.

5 College Junior

Academics: Being a nursing major at William Carey is great. It's a 3 and a half year program, so it can be very stressful at times. However, all of the professors are willing to help all they can.

Greek Life: The students who participate in the Greek life on campus are the same as everyone else. The only difference is that they put in a lot more volunteer hours. That's what being Greek is all about at William Carey. It's another opportunity to serve.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: The student life on campus is okay. Our facilities are adequate for the most part. The library doesn't have many books, but the people who work in there are always friendly and willing to help. The student center is always hosting events that offer free food that is catered by local restaurants.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: As far as I know, there has not been any crime on campus. Our security officers do a great job of keeping the campus safe. I always feel safe while I'm on campus.

Party Scene: I typically avoid the nightlife and party scene, but from what I've heard they are both great.
