With open doors and outstretched arms, Southern Miss has officially welcomed William Carey University students to campus as they pick up where they left off after the devastating tornadoes on January 21.
Southern Miss is utilizing space on campus for William Carey students to be able to host physical classes.
“There are a couple of facilities on campus that were recently vacated as some of the Southern Miss units moved across campus,” said Coll. “For example, Harkins Hall was the school of nursing, but they’ve moved to the new Asbury Hall, leaving Harkins unused.”
Coll said there are other underused spaces on campus that could potentially be used as labs and classrooms for William Carey students, without having to make alterations to the schedules or services available for the Southern Miss students.
“We’d like to help for as long as we can,” said Coll. “We’re not sure how long that is just yet.”
