BE UNIQUE. BE EXTRAORDINARY.

Choose your path.

BE INVOLVED.

BE PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER AT LIMESTONE. DON’T OVERLOOK THE CLASSROOM OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM. WHERE TEXTBOOKS AND LECTURES LEAVE OFF, OPPORTUNITIES FOR EXPANDING ON CLASSROOM KNOWLEDGE, IN EXTRAORDINARY WAYS, ARE WAITING.

The broad and diverse scope of extracurricular activities at Limestone is intentional. We not only want you to have some fun honing skills you already possess; we invite you to do some old-fashioned “dabbling,” as well. For instance, you say you plan to be a science major...but on the side, you also love playing the clarinet. Not a problem! Join the Science Club and try out for the jazz band, too. Likewise, being a business major and auditioning for a role in a Limestone theatre production are not mutually exclusive.
Simply put, we really want you to get involved while you’re here. We feel certain you’ll enjoy it, and with thirty different organizations on the Limestone campus to explore, we’re confident you’ll discover a satisfying balance of academics with personal, professional and spiritual growth. Look at it this way: the other classroom at Limestone University is all about what you can do with what you know.

  • Ten historic buildings on campus are included on the National Register of Historic Places. These buildings have been renovated to meet today’s ever-changing technological needs.

For over a century and a half, Limestone University has been a community within a community. The Limestone Springs Historic District encompasses much of the Limestone University campus, and it’s easy to see how campus life has always blended naturally into the friendly, supportive, welcoming city of Gaffney, South Carolina.

Today, many Limestone service projects benefit neighbors in Gaffney and surrounding Cherokee County. In turn, the greater community provides its university students with hometown, southern-style opportunities for recreation, entertainment, sightseeing, shopping and more. We’re on Gaffney’s calendar. And they’re on ours.

TAKE IT DOWNTOWN

Everyone needs a break. When a book-weary Limestone student needs to unwind, historic downtown Gaffney makes the grade. Check out consignment shops and antique stores; stroll the historic commercial and residential districts; visit art galleries and museums; or just kick back with a picnic in the city park. From outlet centers to the farmers market, from pizzas and burgers to coffee shops and home style sit-down restaurants, Gaffney has a tradition of looking after its LC Saints.
