Erica Compton

Sr. Advisor, Academic Advising

Erica got her start in higher education as a high school graduate as an admission clerk and found she loved the college environment so much she decided to pursue her own education and focus her career within the field.  It’s now been almost a decade in higher ed and her experience encompasses many facets of student services: financial aid, admissions, the Registrar's office, international student services, and academic advising. She has an A.G.S. from Central Texas College, a B.S. in Sociology from Troy University and a M.S. in International Relations also from Troy. 

Originally from Idaho, Erica had the pleasure to live in the southern region of the United States where ya’ll and fixin’ to became a norm within her vocabulary. Although she misses sweet tea , boiled peanuts, and Roll Tide/War Eagle rivalries, she enjoys being back in Idaho where the mountains provides camping in the summer and skiing in the winter.  Outside of work she keeps a busy schedule with three boys, the "better half", and a bunch of critters.
