Location is what keeps my rating from being 5 stars. There is nothing in Gaffney, SC! However, you will get a great education because Limestone, itself, is a fine institution. There is a lot to offer in terms of majors, including 8 majors with an entry-level Masters program. Eighty percent of the day campus students are recruited athletes from all over the world. Working adults have the option for evening classes or online degrees. Other selling features are free tutoring and a global experience option that includes a free trip abroad.

Limestone is a place to come to be extremely focused. Personally, I had better offers to go to other colleges but because I wanted to achieve academic success I came to Limestone. Limestone offers small class sizes that helps students and professors connect on a level that you will never have at any other college, here you are not a number you are truly a name with a face! If this campus continues to improve on its new construction Limestone will be on their way!
Online classes at Limestone are great because they allow for more flexibility in daily life. Working and going to school can be very challenging; Therefore, having the option to do your school work anytime of the day is more practical for some. I loved taking online classes at Limestone. The professors were very involved in learning, quick to help, and easy to reach in case of confusion.

As far as the courses go - each are well taught and thoroughly planned. The use of Blackboard, as a space for digital learning, makes assignments easy to organize, complete and submit. The use of Proctorio for tests is very convenient also.
