Meet Your Chapter Leaders
Kevin Snyder '01
Lives in: Santa Ana, California
Major: History and Economics
Occupation: Estate planning and Elder Law Attorney
Favorite BC Memory: The RV pilgrimages to South Bend to cheer on BC against Notre Dame (and winning in 1999).
Why did you get involved?: I wanted to get connected with other alumni who share the same passion for BC as I do. Being an east coast transplant on the west coast, it's great to have a community that feels like "home." Also, I wanted to gather with like-minded individuals to better help and shape our greater community in the Jesuit tradition of being men and women for others.
What are your local favorites?: Chapman Crafted and Green Cheek breweries in and nearby the Orange Circle (if you are into craft beer, this is some of the best). Going to the beach at Crystal Cove and eating at the Beachcomber. Riding beach cruisers along the strand on the Newport/Balboa Peninsula and then taking the ferry over to Balboa Island for brunch/lunch and a famous frozen banana.
Fun Fact: I love to draw cartoons and have a side hobby of creating greeting cards.

What are your local favorites in your city?: Running along the boardwalk down to The Wedge, happy hour at The Cannery, Avocado Toast at Alta Coffee, and sushi from Buddha's Favorite.
