The mission of the Limestone University Honors College is to provide academically gifted students with a rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum and an engaging learning community that equips them with the knowledge, creativity, and adaptability to thrive and lead.
The skills that we help develop in the Honors College are skills that employers and graduate schools are looking for. In other words, being in the Honors College is going to help you tremendously after you graduate from Limestone. As a graduate of our Honors College will give you a leg up when applying to graduate school or entering the job market.
Limestone’s Honors College is not necessarily “harder” -- but it is different. For example, in a regular Public Speaking class, you might give four speeches to your fellow students. However, in our advanced Public Speaking class, you might be asked to give a speech in a different forum, perhaps in an online setting, or possibly to a local civic club.
After being accepted, retention into the Honors College is dependent upon maintaining a “B” or higher cumulative grade point average (3.0 to 4.0 scale) in all coursework. Students who successfully complete the program’s requirements will receive special recognition at their graduation ceremony.
Limestone’s Honors College was initially an Honors Program, established in the fall of 1983 as a way to create a challenging academic environment for gifted and special ability students on The University’s Day Campus. The inaugural Honors Program included 16 students. In July 2021, the Honors Program officially became an Honors College.
We are now looking for creative and bright minds who will take the College to the next level.
