Associate Director of Residential and Student Affairs
B.A. – Huntington University
Office: WA 171
Bridger is excited to begin his second full school year as Associate Director of Residential and Student Affairs. He loves working in an office directly across the courtyard from the apartment he lived in as a 1st floor SLC from 2013-2016.
Bridger was born in Hong Kong and lived in Macau through his childhood. His family moved to Huntington, Indiana when he was in fifth grade. He attended Huntington North High School and Huntington University (BA English ’09). During his time at HU, he was employed part-time as a local sportswriter and radio broadcaster. Bridger has returned to Southeast Asia many times since moving to Indiana, including seven trips as a volunteer with English camps in China and a two-year stint as an English instructor in Macau after college.
Bridger lives in Muncie with his wife Shannon (3rd floor SLC, 2012-2015), son Ben (age two), and baby daughter Hazel. Ben and Hazel are the only grandchildren on both sides of the family, so most of Bridger and Shannon’s free time is spent visiting with family around Indiana. Bridger is an avid sports fan (Go Cubs!), loves learning about other cultures, and is always eager to try new types of food—the spicier, the better!
