Limestone College primarily serves students from South Carolina and other Eastern Seaboard states. Limestone students generally major in fields directly related to career preparation; at the same time, they receive a strong foundation in the liberal arts. The campus day program offers a traditional college setting for students with diverse backgrounds. Students are active in campus and community life through social and service organizations. The Honors Program challenges those with exceptional intellectual ability, and the Program for Alternative Learning Styles fosters academic success for those with documented learning disabilities. The Extended Campus attracts hard working, goal-oriented men and women who aspire to attain their degrees to increase opportunities for personal growth and career advancement. The College offers this program on campus and at off-campus sites throughout South Carolina. The Extended Campus has been offering courses through the Internet since 1996 as an avenue of learning to those who cannot attend traditional or nontraditional programs in their local area. The course content for these courses is the same as that which is taught in traditional courses. All lectures, labs, and assignments are delivered to the student via the Internet and e-mail. Most courses have no specific times that the student must be on line. The Extended Campus Program provides the opportunity for students from all walks of life and geographic locations to have access to a quality education.
