FIGs and TrIGs

Are you new to MU? Consider participating in a freshman or transfer student interest group! This is a great way to connect with SHP/DHS students and faculty. Contact your adviser or residential life to learn more.

Four Winds Thematic Learning Community — Dogwood Hall

This wellness-driven community is for students who are motivated to improve the lives of others. Whether helping a patient walk again through physical therapy or helping someone communicate effectively through speech therapy, you will focus on helping others by participating in community service and personal wellness opportunities. 

FIG students spend a lot of time in class learning from each other. General education classes shared by FIG students can be large lecture classes, so you won’t be limited to JUST your FIG friends – but it’s handy to have a roommate heading to the same class as you!

Students in FIGs often get more of an opportunity to interact with professors, upper level students and people in the community who share their passions. Students in Health Professions FIGs & TrIGs have the opportunity to connect directly with students, faculty & staff within the School of Health Professions.  You will also be housed in an area with students with similar academic interests.
