College of Health and Human Services at Missouri State University

Increase the chance to succeed

A living and learning community is designed to help students with similar educational interests live together on a floor of the residence hall. Students live with nursing students and future health and human service professionals from the fields of:


Advantages of living in a LLC include:

  • Informal advisement by faculty in the school
  • Mentoring from upper-level students in the school
  • Networking opportunities with alumni and health care professionals
  • Faculty-led study sessions
  • Opportunity to learn strategies to help the student reach his or her full academic potential
  • Planned activities that encourage socializing with other LLC students

Students may move into Blair-Shannon a day early, allowing them to beat the crowds and begin meeting other future health and human service professionals. Two faculty members, called “fellow faculty,” are assigned to the hall to answer academic questions and provide guidance.
