HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

U.S. News and World Report released their ranking of universities today, honoring William Carey University of Hattiesburg as the number one best value among southern regional universities.

This distinction sets William Carey apart from over 125 southern colleges and universities.  The rankings are calculated using various statistics, such as a school's academic quality and the net cost of attendance.  Students at William Carey currently pay $15,00 a year for tuition room and board for their top notch education at the South's Best Value University. 

"This recognition is not just saying that we're the cheapest in the South; it's saying that we're the best value," explains Dr. Hummel, Provost of WCU.  "I think it's an indication of how hard we've worked and how diligent we've been to keep our costs low and affordable for our students."

The university also ranked thirty-sixth overall among regional southern universities, a vast improvement from last year's ranking of sixty-ninth.  Great things are happening at William Carey University and according to Provost Dr. Scott Hummel, things will only continue to improve.
