William Carey University will resume online classes Wednesday

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - William Carey University took a hit from Saturday’s tornado.

But, luckily, every student received a tornado warning alert, which helped saved everyone's lives.

William Carey President, Dr. Tommy King said, "Our housing people were trained. Students were knowledgeable. So, they got them all to safe places. And, it was a miracle that no student was killed or even injured seriously."

Most local students have gone back home.

Out-of-state and international students are living either with local friends, or staying at USM or Camp Shelby.

"We’re working hard to get classes started. Many, many, many of our classes we can carry online. And, we hope to have those up and running by Wednesday," said King.

King said he is grateful for all of the support.

Most classes will likely be online for the rest of the year. The medical and science classes will be at USM and Pearl River Community College.

"The thing that makes Hattiesburg such a great place to be is the community response in times like this," said King.
