undefinedMission and Goal of the Office of Student Success

The Division of Student Success seeks to empower students with the knowledge, skills, and awareness necessary to achieve success in college and in life. We offer a number of programs and services to enhance the overall success of students at Limestone University and to support them in their goal of achieving a college degree. Our services are free for current Limestone students. 

As a partner in the educational process, the Division of Student Success serves as a guiding force in creating an environment throughout campus that supports retention and degree completion.

Programs & Services

Saints Shoutouts
The Saints Shoutout program allows faculty, staff, and students to send a Kudo to a member of the Limestone community to celebrate accomplishments, recognize achievements, say thank you. This program will recognize small wins throughout the semester and will give positive feedback to our Saints family.

Limestone University faculty, staff, and students may submit a Kudo by completing a form online.

Saints Stop
The purpose of Saints Stop is to alleviate food insecurity and hunger by providing basic necessities to Limestone University Day students who find themselves in emergency need. Often times, when students do not have the means to purchase essentials, they have difficulty focusing on their coursework. We want to change that! Through a referral process, the program will distribute food and hygiene products to Limestone students during the academic year. By meeting these emergency needs of our students, we can alleviate some stressors and support their success inside and outside of the classroom.  Limestone University faculty, staff, and students may submit a Saints Stop referral online or by visiting Cooper East 110.

Success Coaching

The Office of Student Success fosters the development of students’ academic and personal goals through personalized success coaching. Success coaching is an individualized meeting with a trained professional who wants to help students reach their goals. Conversations with a Success Coach will focus on learning strategies, life management and goal attainment. A meeting with a Success Coach is the best way for a student to personalize their education and stay on track to graduation. It provides them the opportunity to talk about their own experience at Limestone, in and out of the classroom, and what resources they need to achieve their goals.

We recommend a minimum of three meetings per semester with a Success Coach:

  • First of the semester to review the student’s course load and devise strategies to attack their work.
  • Mid-semester after they’ve settled into classes and are aware of assignment dates.
  • End of the semester to sharpen their focus on their remaining work.
     

Students can schedule additional meetings with their Success Coach anytime, especially when they:

  • feel they’re “not doing well”
  • have questions about a Limestone policy
  • feel undue academic or personal pressure
  • want to explore academic options of any kind
  • want to sharpen learning or life management skills

LinkedIn 101: Using LinkedIn to Land Your Dream Job Before You Graduate

LinkedIn is helping soon-to-be grads from around the country tap into their professional community—whether they realize they have one already or not. 

Trying to land your dream career out of the gate is a tall order. But here’s the good news: There are roughly 11 million job openings per month in America at any given time. Sure, you don’t want all those jobs, but you want some of them—and some of them want you! 

LinkedIn connects qualified candidates with companies and organizations that crave top talent. With these tips, you’ll be well on your way to snagging a seat at the professional table before graduation. 

Why LinkedIn?   

  • 80% of LinkedIn members consider professional networking to be important to new job opportunities and career success, according to LinkedIn research
  • 70% of people were hired at a company where they had a connection 
  • More than 20 million professionals including recruiters, hiring managers and decision makers use LinkedIn every week 

With 530+ million professionals in the LinkedIn community, there is no other place where you can access such a wide range of knowledge, skills and resources to help you reach your goals. 

Let LinkedIn do the work for you

Searching for jobs can seem like a daunting task. More than a quarter of professionals say they have no time to search for new opportunities. 

But worry not, with search alerts you can get notifications and updates to a saved search via email or shared with you on LinkedIn. Use advanced search filters to narrow down opportunities by industry, location, experience level and more. Once your filtered search is set, simply create the alert. 

Let recruiters know you’re open to new opportunities by simply flipping a switch on your LinkedIn profile. It’s called Open Candidates, and yes, it’s that easy. Open Candidates is accessible from the “Preferences” tab on the LinkedIn Jobs home page. 

By flipping the switch, you privately signal to recruiters that you’re interested in new opportunities. Don’t forget to update your career interests. This helps you appear in the search results that recruiters are regularly scouring. Additionally, this helps inform the daily job recommendations LinkedIn sends you and surfaces on the jobs homepage.

Discover your earning potential 

LinkedIn tapped into its network of more than 530 million members to give you deep insight into salary and the compensation landscape. You can also dig deeper into compensation insights about specific companies you’re interested in. That way, you are ready when the time comes to talk about your salary. 

LinkedIn Salary includes base compensation, bonus, and equity data for specific job titles, and the different factors that impact pay such as years of experience, industry, company size, location, and education level. 

Entrepreneur? Create your own job — become a freelancer 

LinkedIn ProFinder started as an idea that has grown into a vibrant freelance marketplace being used by more than 70,000 freelance professionals across the nation. LinkedIn has seen client demand surge with weekly requests for proposals growing more than fivefold in one year. 

Seek career advice from others 

  • More than 80% of professionals on LinkedIn have stated they either want to have a mentor or be one to others 
     
  • More than half don’t know where to begin and more than one-third have a hard time finding the right person 

LinkedIn launched Career Advice, a new feature that helps connect members across the LinkedIn network with one another for lightweight mentorship opportunities. Whether you need advice on your career path, switching to a new industry or best practices for a project you’re working on, Career Advice can help you find and connect with the right person who can help. 

Learn the skills needed for your next gig 

  • One-third of job-seekers have expressed concern that they don’t have the necessary skills to be competitive in the job market 
  • Many people who are looking for work from home jobs use LinkedIn learning to gain the skills needed to be an ideal candidate for remote work. 

With LinkedIn Learning, you can now access a gigantic database of online courses on topics from coding and graphic design to public speaking. And here’s the best part: each course is typically sliced up into very manageable 5-10 minute learning chunks. Learning a new skill over the course of a week quickly becomes very achievable. 

Connect with alumni 

One of the easiest ways for students and alumni to make connections is through LinkedIn Alumni tool. It’s an easy way to explore the alumni directories and find who graduated from your same school, where they work now and in what cities. Simply search for your school and select “see alumni” to get started. You can access career paths for more than 23,000 colleges and universities worldwide.

  • Members with current positions are discovered up to 16x more in recruiter searches 
  • Members with more than 5 skills are 27x more likely to be discovered in searches by recruiters 
  • Including the city where you are based makes you stand out up to 23x in searches 

Bonus: Check out Resume Assistant, a new integration from Microsoft and LinkedIn to help you use Microsoft Word as a powerful and professional resume builder.

About the Interview:

• Please allow at least one hour for your interview appointment.

• You will be asked to submit a copy of your resume and a sample job/grad school description before the interview.

General Interview Guidelines: 

Studies have shown that people who take the step of preparing for interviews are better able to handle difficult interview questions, adequately communicate their strengths, and be themselves. The very first question asked in the majority of interviews is “Tell me about yourself.” You must be prepared to talk about why you are the best candidate for the job out of all the other people they may be interviewing. Tell who you are, what your main strengths and skills are, and where your experience comes from. 

Here is a list of commonly asked interview questions:

Commonly Asked Interview Questions

The job interview experience isn’t just a time for the potential employer to get to know more about you and your qualifications for the job; it’s also your time to find out more about the company culture, job expectations, and how satisfied employees are. Be sure to do your research on the company before you go into the interview. Also, come prepared with questions to ask at the end of the interview. 

Here is a list of examples of ideal questions you should ask the interviewer:

The Equity and Inclusion Office at Limestone University is dedicated to opening doors of equal opportunity to individuals with disabilities. We assist students who self-identify with documented disabilities by determining their eligibility for services through an interactive, collaborative process between the student and Equity and Inclusion staff, and then working together to determine reasonable accommodations and services.

Accommodations may include, but are not limited to, extended time on exams, textbooks in alternate formats, note takers, and assistive technology. Students should be aware that while accommodations are intended to remove barriers to learning, they do not ensure success. Limestone University students are responsible for meeting the essential academic standards set forth by the college for its courses, programs, services, and activities. Students must register with Equity and Inclusion Office each semester.

Students must register with the Equity and Inclusion Office each semester before accessible education services can be provided. Following the review of supporting documentation and a structured exchange between Equity and Inclusion Team Members and the student, an accommodation letter is written and sent electronically to professors. There is never a fee for accommodations.

Section 504 Grievance Policy & Procedures

The following internal grievance procedures have been adopted for students and employees of Limestone University. A grievance is defined as any dissatisfaction occurring as the result of an individual’s belief that an issue relating to accessibility affects the individual unjustly or inequitably. This may involve allegations of disability discrimination, including disability harassment, carried out by employees, other students, or third parties. The individual has the right to raise a complaint and to have that complaint considered with courtesy and objectivity, in a timely fashion, and without fear of prejudicial treatment or retaliation. In cases of harassment, the University will take steps to prevent reoccurrence of any harassment and to correct discriminatory effects on the grievant and others, if appropriate. An individual with a complaint is encouraged to document and seek resolution within the following process:

  1. Informal Resolution Process. At any time during the grievance process, the Grievance Administrator may inquire of the parties if they wish to participate in an informal resolution of the grievance. If both the grievant and the respondent agree to do so, the Grievance Administrator will meet with them informally to attempt to resolve the grievance. If a resolution of the grievance is reached between the grievant and the respondent, the agreement shall be reduced to writing and signed by the grievant and the respondent. The grievance will be considered resolved and no further action will be taken on the grievance. In the case of a physical barrier, the individual should contact the Office for Accessibility in an attempt to resolve the complaint through informal means.
  2. If the grievance is not resolved informally, the individual may initiate a formal grievance by filing a complaint in writing. Documentation should include a narrative of the situation and the name of the individual(s) or entity which the grievant believes engaged in discriminatory action. For this step, the individual may complete the Grievance Form available in the following locations: the office of the ADA Coordinator (Cooper East 100), the Office for Accessibility/504 Coordinator (Fort D 201), or on the Accessibility webpage via the University website. The 504 Coordinator (or in cases of conflict of interest, the ADA Coordinator) will issue a written decision on the grievance no later than 30 days after its filing. If there are circumstances that affect Limestone University’s ability to reach fact witnesses and to review documents (e.g., school breaks, the availability of parties with information), the timeline may be extended.
  3. If the grievance is not resolved, the person filing the grievance may appeal the decision of the 504 Coordinator (or ADA Coordinator) by resubmitting the grievance form or letter indicating inadequate resolution from Steps 2 and 3 to the Provost (Cooper West 103) within 15 days of receiving the decision.
  4. As needed, the Provost will convene the Grievance Committee and order an investigation.  The Grievance Committee is composed of five members: three faculty and two administrator or staff members. At least five college business days in advance of the hearing, the chair of the committee will notify the grievant and the individual charged with the complaint of the date, time, and place of the hearing, the specific nature of the complaint, and the composition of the committee. Notification will occur by telephone or email, with confirmation that all parties have been notified.

    The grievance hearing is a private, internal review. The grievant may be assisted by a faculty representative. However, persons external to the University shall be excluded from the grievance hearing.

    All involved parties have the right to be present when grievances and evidence are presented to the committee and to provide evidence in support of their respective positions. Committee members may question relevant parties (present only during questioning) to evaluate all the relevant facts of a given case.

    The report and recommendation of the committee shall be in writing, including the committee's rationale for the decision; the report may include any dissenting opinions. Only those committee members who have heard all testimony and evidence in a given case may vote on the committee's recommendation. The committee's report and recommendation shall be forwarded to the Provost within 10 business days of the hearing. The Provost will make the final determination and formally advise the parties involved in the grievance within five business days.
  5. If after meeting with the Provost the complaint is not reconciled, then the student may submit the revised Grievance Form to, and schedule an appointment with, the President of the University (within five business days of step 4, above).  The President will issue a final determination on the grievance within ten days of meeting with the student.

Students are encouraged to first attempt resolution within the grievance procedure guidelines. Grievances must be addressed within one semester of the aggrieved event. However, students maintain the right to file a complaint directly with the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) at any time. OCR dictates a 180 day (from date of incident) Statute of Limitations for filing a complaint.

Limestone University reserves the right to amend, change, or substitute, in whole or part, any of the grievance procedures set forth herein, in the event there are changes in applicable laws or regulations which require changes.

Confidentiality: Any information regarding the filing of a grievance, the investigation of the grievance, and the disposition of the case shall be treated confidentially and will be disclosed only as needed in the furtherance of the complaint and its resolution.  Unauthorized breaches of confidentiality may result in disciplinary action.

Retaliation: Civil rights regulations prohibit institutions from retaliating against anyone because they have filed a complaint with the Office for Civil Rights of the Department of Education, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or the U.S. Department of Justice, or because they assist or take part in a subsequent investigation.

Accessibility Grievance Form

Barrier Notice

Limestone University is committed to equal access and the civil rights of people with disabilities, and so it strives to remove barriers to its programs wherever they may exist through systematic barrier removal, proper and timely maintenance, encouraging universal design, etc.  In the event you encounter a barrier on the Limestone University campus, such as an inoperative elevator, bicycles blocking an access ramp, etc., please notify us so the college can remove barriers or explore solutions as quickly as possible.

Reports about barriers may be made by submitting detailed information including exact location, date, and time of barrier, and how situation presents a barrier to equal access to accessibility@limestone.edu. For readily achievable barrier removal after normal business hours for circumstances such as a bike blocking a ramp, contact Public Safety at 864-488-8344.

Information submitted does not constitute a formal complaint or grievance.  However, Limestone University will follow up in as timely a manner as possible.

Housing policy stipulates that all unmarried, first and second-year students who are under the age of 21 at the time of enrollment and who do not live with parent(s) or legal guardian(s) within 50 mile radius of the University, are required to live in campus housing for the fall and spring semesters. The only exceptions to the preceding requirement are for those students who are non-traditional students, veterans of military service, and transfer students who have been out of high school one year or more. In order to be exempt, the student must obtain approval from the Director of Residence Life and Housing. Incoming first-year students who desire a residency waiver, and live with parent(s) or legal guardian(s) within a 50-mile radius of the University requirement, must complete the Change of Status. After a student has lived on campus their first and second year, they may choose to live off campus, typically their junior year.

Transfer Students are not considered first-year students. Transfer students are housed on a space availability basis.

To be eligible to reside in campus housing, the student must be enrolled in full-time academic course work at the start of the semester (minimum of 12 semester hours). Exceptions must be approved by the Director of Residence Life and Housing. If the student’s enrollment status changes to part-time status, the University has the right, but not the obligation, to terminate the housing agreement.

On campus housing for students who are less than seventeen years old is subject to approval. Limestone University does not provide family housing for students.
