Library & Student Center Rendering

Limestone College will soon construct a new $18 million building on campus that will be home to both a library and student center.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the 65,000-square-foot facility is expected to take place early in 2019, and the anticipated completion date is the fall of 2020 when the school’s name will change to Limestone University. The project’s conclusion will also coincide with Limestone’s 175th anniversary.

The building is being made possible through a recently approved loan from the USDA.

USDA Paperwork

The paperwork has been signed, the final plans are being developed, and the ceremonial shovels will soon be polished.

As part of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development program, the Limestone College Board of Trustees voted unanimously on Thursday, Sept. 27, to accept the terms of a loan not to exceed $34.5 million.

An overall $42.5 million project, the College will use the USDA loan proceeds, in part, to construct a new $18 million building on campus that will be home to both a library and student center.


“Trick-or-Treat with the Saints” will be held on Wednesday, October 31, on the front campus of Limestone College.

Cherokee County school children are invited to visit the Limestone campus from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m., as the College’s student organizations will be handing out candy to all the trick-or-treaters!

It will be a not-so-scary good time at Limestone College!

Parker Flag Presentation

Limestone College President Dr. Darrell Parker (fourth from left) was recently presented with the South Carolina flag that flew over his Presidential Inauguration on Friday, Sept. 28.

The flag -- which flew over the State House in Columbia prior to the Inauguration at Limestone -- was provided by the Office of S.C. Governor Henry McMaster.

Limestone College's Christian Education Leadership Program (CELP) is sponsoring a Pastor Appreciation Luncheon on Wednesday, October 31, at 11:30 a.m. inside the banquet room of Stephenson Dining Hall & Conference Center. 

"This is a gift from Limestone College in appreciation for the work our local pastors do to bring God's kingdom to Earth in Cherokee County," said Reverned Ron Singleton, the Director of CELP and the College's chaplain.
