GAFFNEY, SC – An overflow crowd gathered at Fullerton Auditorium on Thursday, Aug. 29, as Limestone College president Dr. Walt Griffin, during his annual Convocation, welcomed students to campus for the 2013-2014 school year.

There was not an empty seat to be found as Dr. Griffin announced record enrollment figures during the event that also recognized new faculty members and the achievements of students and athletic teams from the previous year.

Dr. Griffin noted that Limestone currently has a record total of 1,030 day students, which is a 16 percent increase over a year ago.  Of those, 500 are a combination of freshmen and new transfers.

A new contractor has brought new life to Limestone College’s student center in the heart of campus.The revamped space — once home to old couches, cinder block walls and food that did little to capture the appetites of Limestone students — now boasts brand new furniture, a Sub Connection and a Starbucks.

School officials said the contractor, Sodexo, assumed the school’s food service contract in mid-May and immediately poured several hundred thousand dollars into the upgrades.
