A three-time team captain, Dobbs capped off her senior season with eight career top 10 rankings, setting new program records in three-point field goals made (222) and games started (117) while also making the top 10 in scoring (7th – 1,288), assists (2nd – 420), steals (9th – 211), three-point field goal percentage (4th - .372), free throw percentage (7th - .792) and games played (3rd - 122).

Dobbs majored in public health with a minor in biology and carries a cumulative GPA of 3.81. She received the American University President's Award in May and was named the Patriot League Scholar-Athlete of the Year for the third time in March, becoming only the second women's basketball student-athlete in Patriot League history to do so. Dobbs was a three-time Academic All-Patriot League Team selection, two-time CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team honoree, 2013 Senior CLASS Award nominee and Division I-AAA ADA Scholar-Athlete Team selection. After graduation, she will enter a joint program through Cleveland State University and Cuyahoga Community College to earn her M.S. in physician assistant studies.
