It’s a hot, sunny summer day in Hattiesburg today, July 21, 2017. Six months ago in the early morning hours of January 21, many of our Carey students awoke to rain, thunder and lightning as storms rolled through the Pine Belt, bringing with them the EF-3 tornado that tore through our campus. 
 
That is a day that will remain in our memories, but we have made great progress in rebuilding the campus in a short amount of time. In those first hours, the university administration assured us Carey would come back stronger than ever, and indeed we are. “Carey Strong” was not just a slogan we adopted; we lived it and demonstrated it through the dedication of our students, faculty, staff and the community that supported us. 
 
“Losing so much in the tornado was a tragedy, but the opportunity to rebuild a better campus is a challenge that comes once in a generation,” said President Tommy King on the six-month anniversary of the tornado.
