Throughout Limestone's 166 year career, the school has grown and changed vastly . Beginning as one of the first all-female schools in the United States, the school offered an educational home to females from across the Carolinas and surrounding regions . As the years have past, Limestone College has expanded into a coeducational, nationally accredited College which now offers online degrees and boasts eight campuses across the South Carolinian terrain, making it the largest private college in South Carolina. While these expansions are the fruit of years of hard work, from the founde rs Dr. Thomas Curtis and his son, William Curtis, to current president Dr. Walt Griffin, the efforts have proven effectual for students, as Limestone now graduates approximately 800 students each academic year. The lives of alumni and current students alike are enriched from time spent studying at Limestone as they become well prepared for their future in the work force . Because of these many accomplishments, it became apparent to this year's Co/ciid staff that it was time to highlight the history of Limestone College in print. Over the past two semesters, the Co/ciid staff spent countless hours researching the history of Limestone through old editions of the Colciid and conversing with faculty and staff. It is our hope that, as you peruse the pages of this year's Colciid, you will not only take joy in the memories of this year's students, but you'll learn about Limestone's rich history and, as the years continue to pass, push forward with the ever-changing Limestone College .
