My son is considering Wm Carey U. Is crime an issue in Hattiesburg if he were to live off campus? What are the good/bad area to avoid? Thank you.

1. Re: crime

Our daughter attended USM in Hattiesburg. We purchased a home in the historic district rather than lease. In the 4 years we had the home it was burglarized 3 times. Suggest you look for some of the newer apartment communities.
