Overall Experience: William Carey University is an excellent choice!

Academics: They offer a wide variety of academic classes upon any subject and subject level. They offer room rentals for student to students to use to have study groups. The registration process was a tad lengthy but it over all was a smooth process. One of the professor over that teaches art classes really studies us student so that they can understand us and how we learn. I really appreciate their passion for teaching students.

Health & Safety: The area outside of campus is unsafe but inside campus is like that of a safe haven. It's a safe environment with no need to worry about much because the secrurity staff is always around watching over those on campus.

Campus Housing: I do not stay in the dorms but have visited them with friends that are. They've me mentioned its perks as well as the downers. Mostly they deal with a little drama here and there. Over all they seem to enjoy it.

Athletics: The athletic facilities are relatively small compared to other universities. The equipment for the most part isn't up to date as desired. The fans are not as enthused like most other universities fans I believe it's because there is not a football team. Football is America's game everyone loves it and because of its popularity anything planted around it grabs attention from those around. Don't get me wrong the sports we do have are good teams that do their best.

Overall Experience: The environment is really engaging and the professor really care not only for the students and the subjects they teach. Everyone on campus is super friendly and is always there to lend a helping hand. When i toured carey i simply fell in love with the art department and at that moment I knew i was destined to be a part of it. The down side of Carey in Hattiesburg would be the art department not having a building of their own as well as the proper supplies. Because of such drawbacks students have to work extra hard with what is available. What the art department does have is a great system of working and teaching students but I could be so much more . Aside from that I have learned so much and have thoroughly enjoyed William Carey university of Hattiesburg Mississippi.

Academics: Chemistry department is pretty bad

Athletics: No comment. We don't gave a football team

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although you get the get education for your money's worth, it is a baptist college that is small which means the students are "sheltered" and are not prepared for the college life and real world.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: William Carey, what can one say besides saying one thing, Christ. With what is going on with the world today and how people can not pray or even say Christian subjects without being criticized, it feels amazing to be at a school where Christ is their main focus. The administration accepts their students as family, understanding the students and helping them out in any way the can. I extremely felt welcomed the first day I arrived here. I brag about my University because it is a place to worship, to make memorable friends and to understand Christ and the life of that age. The education program is outstanding and the pride of the people for becoming who they want to be shows. Other universities should take not of this place, because no other can bet such a college as this one. Proud student of William Carey.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: William Carey University is a great school, I can't deny that. The classes are interesting and the teachers really want to help you learn. It's just not the right fit for me. I went to a small school from 1st-12th grade and Carey feels exactly the same. I don't even live on campus because I live 15 minutes away with my parents. Nothing is different. I've realized that I'm tired of being the same and that I needed a change. I didn't go to Carey for the right reasons. I only went there because I received an amazing scholarship but I've seriously considered dropping it because of the conditions to it. I'm so thankful for the scholarship I have but I shouldn't have used that as my only reason going there because I am not happy.I feel trapped. The one thing in my life I thought I would finally have a choice ended up not being a choice at all because I chose the idea of money over my dreams. I do love that I can walk around campus and see a lot of people I know because of the small size but I'm ready to grow and move on. There is a lot of good but I just can't ignore how unhappy I am. I just don't fit in there and I need to find where I belong.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed my first trimester at William Carey University. The class have been excellent. The teachers really care about the students learning the material. The classes are also small, so the teachers teach on a more personal level.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: William Carey has been a great experience over all. It escapes for the high school world and you are treated like a young professional. The classes are difficult but not impossible and because of the size of the campus it is not difficult to get from one to the other. The cafeteria food is that bad and Common Grounds is always an option. The professors are very friendly and the small class sizes are very nice. You can tell that everyone here is passionate about education. Due to the outreach programs over seas there is quite a diverse group of students even though the class sizes are quite large. There seems to always be something happening during he week to go to, but once the weekend comes around most people are off campus or in their dorms so you have to go into town if your looking for activities. Overall I am very pleased with William Carey.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Attending this college has been a very good experience so far. The teachers are very enthusiastic about the subject they teach and they sincerely care about the students doing well and learning from the class so they can apply it to their lives. The night classes and the schedules also allow for me to have a part time job and attend college without there being any interferences or clashes in the schedules.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really enjoy the small classes and having one-on-on time with the teacher.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Small class size is great and there is a lot of new construction on campus. Some of the dorms are older and outdated and need to be updated.
