Called to Serve.

Answering the call to serve your country demands sacrifice in the name of freedom. Such an act deserves respect, admiration, and, above all, gratitude. At William Carey University, we applaud the great sacrificial service made by the United States Armed Forces and respond to our own call to serve by providing student veterans with the resources and support they need to excel in the classroom, in their communities, and beyond.
