Associate Director of Residential and Student Affairs
B.A. – Huntington University
Office: WA 171
Bridger cherishes the opportunity to work alongside a group of dedicated SLCs who share a passion for taking care of the students of the Academy. Bridger still gets a kick out of 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 (Class of ’09). During his time at HU, he was employed as a local sportswriter and radio broadcaster. Bridger has returned to 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 (former 3rd floor SLC, 2012-2015) and two children: Ben (4) and Hazel (2). Bridger spends most of his free time visiting family, keeping up with his favorite sports teams, and playing chess.
