Advisors do not actually advise. You will rarely communicate with them. I tend to sign up for my own classes. Professors rarely communicate for the extended online program. They aren't organized and do not actually teach. NOW, LIMESTONE WANTS TO USE PROCTORIO TO RECORD STUDENTS WHILE TAKING EXAMS! They lost me after this terrible decision!

Limestone is a college with plenty of potentials, however, at the moment they are failing to reach such potential. Although the class sizes are small and professors know your name, some courses are only provided every other year. Limestone could use an expansion on their academic horizon however they do not have the staffing to do so. The price of Limestone does not feel worth it in the long run because it feels as though the education being paid for it not received. However, this statement is debatable depending on major. For example, the English department is amazing, the history department is outstanding, the music department is top notch, the business department is worth it, the math department is grand, and the athletic training department is one in the best. However, the biology department could use more expanding to meet different students different learning standards and research requirements.
Limestone College is a private college and has history on its campus. I enjoy the atmosphere on campus. Going to Limestone College, you will feel that you are there to fulfill a purpose or goal. The professors are very helpful and wants their students to succeed. The only thing I probably would change is if Greek life were present. Other than that, I wouldn't change anything. I am a senior, majoring in Healthcare Administration, Bachelor's Degree.
