Dell Connell Department Secretary I have been working at the University of South Alabama for almost 11 years beginning in the medical setting and then moving to academics. I joined the Department of Political Science and Criminal Justice in August 2002 and really enjoy the upbeat attitude of the faculty, staff and students. Anytime I can get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful weather in Mobile (when its is not raining) I love it! I have a son, Toby, who graduated from high school this year, now works part-time and goes to school part-time. And I have a black lab named Precious.
