Tradition Campus

William Carey University dedicated its Tradition Campus located at the intersection of Mississippi 67 and Hwy 605 on August 19, 2009. The 30--acre campus houses administrative, faculty, and registrar offices; an open air student lounge; bookstore; library and computer lab. It features state-of-the-art nursing school facilities with lecture, lab, exam, psychiatric study, exam, and treatment rooms. Over 30 general classrooms and science labs are included. There is also a gatehouse and maintenance building. The $14 million Phase I project has 58,559 square feet. The WCU-Tradition Campus was a 2009 Merit Award Winner in the institutional category by the Mississippi Associated Builders and Contractors.

Additional phases are planned which may accommodate up to 3,000 students.
The Tradition Campus offers majors in art, business administration, elementary education, health related professions, nursing, and psychology. For more information, contact Jerry Bracey, Administrative Dean, at 228-702-1775.
The former 20-acre campus located on Beach Boulevard was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Tradition is the largest master-planned community under development in the state. At full build-out, the 4,800-acre town will be home to more than 15,000 residential units, two million square feet of commercial development and 35,000 to 40,000 residents.

It is located in Central Harrison County, north of Biloxi and Gulfport.
