Record number of graduates at William Carey’s August graduation

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Hundreds of William Carey University students walked across the stage Saturday.

Thanks to William Carey's trimester system, approximately 500 undergraduate and graduate students from New Orleans, Hattiesburg, and tradition campuses received their degrees Friday and Saturday.

The Smith Auditorium was packed all day with many residents, friends and family members due to the 3 out of 4 ceremonies that were held there. President of William Carey Dr. Tommy King said this August graduation is one unlike the rest.

“This is another milestone in the growth of William Carey,” said King. “It's a record number of graduates today and we're hoping for a good, strong enrollment in the fall. We have three building projects underway on campus and we just continue to grow.”
With May and August combined, a total of 1,300 students have graduated from William Carey this year.
