Carey named a "Best Bang for the Buck" school

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from William Carey University

William Carey University has been recognized as a “Best Bang for the Buck” institution in the annual College Guide of Washington Monthly, a bimonthly nonprofit magazine covering politics, government, culture and the media.

Carey was ranked number 15 on the “Best Bang” Southern schools list, which includes over 200 schools. The rankings rate institutions based on criteria including social mobility, research and civic engagement, and also recognize schools that are “doing the best job of helping non-wealthy students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices.” Other factors considered in the rankings include student loan default rate, graduation rate, percentage of students receiving Pell grants, net price, percentage of applicants that are admitted and ACT/SAT scores.

Founded in 1892, Carey has two campuses in Mississippi, including the main campus in Hattiesburg and the Tradition campus in Biloxi. Carey’s mission is to provide quality educational programs both on the undergraduate and graduate levels within a Christian academic community and to challenge the individual student to excel in scholarship, leadership and service in a diverse and global society.
