Admission Counselor

David Compton

Assistant Director of Admissions for Recruitment, Office of Undergraduate Admissions

503-838-8571 | | APSC 408

I am an Admissions Counselor from Western Oregon University. I graduated from Western Oregon University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science in Health Education. I was born in Vallejo, California and lived on the Southern Oregon Coast for 17 years before attending Western Oregon University in a small town called Port Orford, Oregon. My high school graduating class totaled 35 students, and I entered WOU as a first-generation student. Needless to say, I am a small town kind of guy. My recruiting territories include many Oregon counties as well as Nevada. I am also the Athletic Liaison for WOU’s Admissions Office. If you have a question about participating in any of our NCAA Division II athletics, please feel free to ask me a question. While at WOU, I was involved with Residential Life as a Resident Assistant and I spent two years working for the Admissions Office as a campus tour guide and a tele-counselor. Feel free to ask me any question that you may have and I will do my best to give you the most accurate answer.
