Since Limestone was founded in 1845 as the first women’s college in South Carolina, we’ve built a foundation with a commitment to the liberal arts and Christian values. That tradition continues today, with 57 undergraduate majors in a small setting where YOU are the focus.
At Limestone, we provide our students with personalized one-on-one support from day one. Our friendly, small college environment and our commitment to the liberal arts makes it possible for us to offer top-caliber students our full focus.
Limestone University is committed to the liberal arts and sciences and to educating the individuals who will become tomorrow’s leaders, who will render meaningful service, and who will enjoy professional fulfillment as lifelong learners.
When it all comes together – our focus on you, our commitment to making sure you have everything you need to reach your goals, your tireless work, and determination – the end-result is what we all want: your success! It’s a shared goal. It’s the culmination of effort on both sides. It’s a celebration of one of our own – a Limestone Saint – setting out, well-prepared, to meet the future.
There is no cookie-cutter future out there. And that’s why there are no cookie-cutter students at Limestone University. You are one-of-a-kind. And for us, in this ever-changing world, nothing could be more satisfying or more challenging than providing you with the unique, custom-designed tools and resources you need to not just survive, but to stand out and shine. Our mission – supporting you as you follow your dream – is what we do. Here at Limestone University, it is our mission to provide each of our students with the resources and support they need to take their places in society as learners, leaders, and community servants.

"As complicated as the admissions process can be for an international student, the admissions office was very helpful to walk me through every step of the way so that everything was done in a timely matter. I am very thankful for their unconditional help and willingness to go out of their way to get things settle even after the admissions process was over."
- Daniela Medina-Rubiano, Business and Math Major
