William Carey University is a great small, Christian university. The U.S. News and World Reports ranked Carey as the number one best valued college in the south. Trust me, they are definitely right about that.
Ashton from Northport, AL
William Carey is a great place to be. Everyone on campus is very friendly and willing to help you with whatever you need done. The campus is small, but it is also very beautiful.
