Greenville scLimestone College will relocate one of its Extended Campus Classroom sites from Greer to Greenville later this year, school officials have announced.

The satellite classroom will move to a 4,337 square foot space at the intersection of Pleasantburg Drive and Interstate 385, according to Dr. Mark Reger, Limestone’s Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs.

“We’ve been looking to move for a long time, and this is the right time,” said Dr. Reger, who noted that Limestone plans to accommodate initially 50 to 60 students at the Greenville location. “Greenville is a growing area, and we believe that, in order to really be serviceable to students in Greenville and Spartanburg, the Greenville site is optimum because we have a much larger facility and so can serve our students better.”

Limestone plans to renovate the new space, which will house three large classrooms, several small classrooms, a computer lab and offices.

The new Extended Campus coordinator for the Upstate Area, which includes Greenville, is Vickie Fowler. She has 25 years of hands-on experience in marketing/brand development, sales/business development, and public relations/event management and is a graduate of the Leadership Greenville program. She received her B.S. in Business Administration/Marketing from the University of South Carolina.

"Limestone’s Extended Campus program, which offers internet and evening classes, offers five majors at the associate degree level and 19 at the bachelor’s degree level. There are nearly 2,500 students enrolled in the Extended Campus program," Dr. Reger said.

The new Greenville campus will take the place of Limestone’s current extended campus location in Greer, one of the College’s eight classroom locations. The others are located in Charleston, Columbia, Florence, Kingstree, Yemassee, Aiken and evening classes at the main Gaffney campus.

"Students currently enrolled at the Greer location will have the option of going to the school’s main Gaffney campus or the Greenville site," Dr. Reger explained.
