Cover Story:


There was a time when Limestone College was the best kept secret in the Southeast.

Quietly, for years, a renaissance has been taking place.

Over a six year period that spanned the late 1980s and early ’90s, Limestone’s budget operated at a deficit. In those dark days, enrollment numbers were dwindling, buildings were deteriorating, and many wondered if its survival was in jeopardy.

With the hiring of new president Dr. Walt Griffin in 1992, Limestone found stability and started a path to a major turnaround. The College not only recovered from those difficult times, but has flourished during the 24 years of Dr. Griffin’s presidency and is now enjoying an era of growth, stability, and renewal. The transformation of the College and its campus has been nothing short of remarkable.

By practically every gauge, Limestone has not only survived, but thrived. Applications, enrollment, and academic scores have all increased. Quality faculty members have been hired, fundraising is at an all-time high, nearly every existing building has been renovated, and new facilities have been built.

The secret’s out. Limestone is on a roll.
