Dallas Schmidt

Dallas Schmidt
Academic Advisor I
Biology, Biomedical Sciences, Engineering and Pre-Nursing

Dallas was born in Kansas but has lived in Alabama for most of her life. She graduated from the University of South Alabama in 2014 with a B.A. in Communications and is currently pursuing a masters in Higher Education Leadership at South. During her undergrad time at South she met her husband, Mathew and they love South so much that they got engaged on campus at Moulton Tower! The biggest advice she could give herself as a freshman is to put classes first but still have fun! College is the time to join a new organization or have new experiences, but don’t let it get in the way of your classes.
