There are some classes that are easy and some that are hard. It is easy to plan a schedule that can balance your harder classes with easier ones.
Juliana from Hattiesburg, MS
In the classrooms, the professors challenge you to think, discuss and excel. The academic calendar is based on a trimester. Carey has three, ten week semesters. I enjoy the trimesters because it allows me to take more classes throughout the whole year. Plus, after each semester is done, students get a week off. Isn't that great?
Ashton from Northport, AL
The only thing I can see as a challenge for some people would be the simple fact that William Carey University has 3 semesters in one academic school year. It is very easy to get burned out with this type of schedule, but a perc is you get a break after every tri-mester. Other than that, William Carey University is a very hands on college and does everything they can do to help their students succeed!
