Limestone made a ton of positive headlines in 2018. Below are just a few of the stories that made the College community proud during the past 12 months.

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.
