About Limestone University Athletics
Limestone University is a private, Christian, non-denominational, coeducational liberal arts college. The combination of a small campus and a liberal arts emphasis provides Limestone students with individual attention. The Limestone student/ faculty ratio is 13 to 1, so, unlike larger institutions, the Limestone faculty will know your son's or daughter's name, understand their strengths and weaknesses, discover what makes them unique, and help them grow.
Our small size works outside the classroom as well; students can pursue their ambitions. Students will find ample opportunity to immerse themselves in leadership opportunities, athletics, music and performing arts, and much more.
