On Sunday Evening October 24th, 2010, the Alpha Omicron Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha conducted a special ceremony to initiate Dr. Bob Snyder, a Political Science professor at Southwestern University, into the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. Dr. Bob, as most of his students know him, has been a professor at Southwestern University for nearly 20 years with an academic interest focus in Middle East Politics, US Foreign Policy, and Terrorism. In 2007, he was selected for the Academic Fellowship Program in Israel sponsored by the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. A graduate of McDaniel College in Maryland, he went on to receive his masters from the University of Pennsylvania and his doctorate from the University of Maryland. Dr. Bob has long been a mentor to the men of Pi Kappa Alpha, both in the classroom and in their daily lives, and it is an honor and a privilege to now call him a brother and welcome him into the sacred bonds of the fraternity.
