Admissions counseling

For first-generation applicants

Western has a long history of educating and sending first-generation graduates into the Oregon community

There are many time differences between first-generation and traditional admissions applicants with respect to their basic knowledge of the “hidden rules” of college, high school preparation, and level of family support (both emotional and financial). Western Oregon University has a strong tradition and commitment with assisting first generation college students with understanding and overcoming potential obstacles in the admissions process.

My name is David Compton

David Compton: admissions counselor for prospective college students at Western Oregon University

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 before attending Western Oregon University I lived on the Southern Oregon Coast, for 17 years, 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, so 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.

David Compton’s counties: Hood River, Marion, and Wasco

Out of State: Nevada

Also assists: Prospective NCAA Division II athletes, multicultural and first-generation applicants
