William Carey University Reviews
I have done both my undergarment and my graduate degrees at William Carey University, and I am 100% satisfied with all they have done for me. No school is perfect, but as a high school student coming to a college for the first time I was taken care of. I received my undergrad in History with a minor in Biblical Languages, and I adored every moment. I'm currently finishing my Master's in Ancient Imperialism and I am also loving it! I highly recommend WCU to anyone.
William Carey is a university that I would recommend to anyone! It's a university, BUT it isn't a big campus! There is more one on one time with professors, and the classes aren't big at all. The BEST asset the university offers is that it runs off a trimester schedule so that makes the schooling a lot quicker than most.
William Carey University has been by far the best experience of my life, mostly because it has become like Hogwarts for me. Every day feels magical with everything to do here, from involving in extra-curriculars to walking to classes. Besides that, the moral code of the college keeps it standing on solid ground, preventing any sort of bullying, obscene language or drug usage on campus. It is also a place to make some great friends and grow spiritually. I love this University; it is like Hogwarts to me.
