Abbey Bumbledare Marketing and Theatre Student, University of Findlay

JoJo Photography and Film

Hello! My name is Abbey Bumbledare and I am a junior marketing major with a theatre minor at the University of Findlay. In third grade, I begged my parents to let me audition for a community theatre production of Annie and my life has changed ever since. I fell in love with theatre, spending many years acting in community and high school shows. When I arrived at college, I realized my passion for theatre stemmed not from performing onstage, but from the educational, community-driven atmosphere each show brings. My goal is simple: to promote theatre as a transformative art form, one I believe connects us to the human experience through spoken word, movement, and voice.

Residence Life at UF

At UF, I currently hold the title of Resident Director (RD) of Deming Residence Hall. Deming holds approximately 130 residents and has a staff of six Resident Assistants I manage. The RD position contains two main components: administrative work and peer leadership. As an administrator, I track the programs, nights-off, and budgets for each of my RAs. I additionally manage my own $1200 budget, adjudicate disciplinary meetings, and organize monthly staff meetings. I ensure my facility provides a clean and safe environment for my `130 residents.

As a peer leader, I offer insights to my RAs through one-on-one meetings and evaluations. Watching my staff grow into strong, unique leaders is the best part of my job! They teach me how to be a better leader, one filled with grace and an attitude of service.

Other College Adventures

Because of the small program size, UF theatre students wear many hats. I've had the opportunity to perform onstage and work backstage during my time as a theatre minor. Below are some highlights from my time onstage!
