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 beautiful campus. It is always clean and looks great! Great class courses offered. All the staff are such sweet souls, and the teachers are wondering. This is truely a wonderful school.
William Carey will always be my favorite University. I have been at William Carey since the summer of 2015. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at William Carey. I have enjoyed the University so much, I plan to get my Masters here as well! I am beyond glad that I have chosen this University to fulfill my studies. The professors are beyond Amazing and I definitely feel as if they are the absolute best! William Carey went through a disaster on January 21, 2017 and the school has came together to defeat the odds against us. The tornado has taken a lot from the University but there is nothing we can't overcome!
