My name is Quinlyn Beaver (Quin)! I grew up right here in Upstate New York and received my undergraduate degree from Utica College where I majored in Political Science as a member of their Pre-Law Program. I am interested in pursuing Corporate Law and the position of Corporate Counsel for an organization involving one my greatest passions of health, nutrition, and/or fitness. Here at Syracuse Law, I serve as the 1L Representative for Corporate Law Society and am also involved in Entertainment and Sports Law Society and Women’s Law Student Association. Go Orange!
I am a current first year law student at Syracuse University College of Law. I’m from Eagle Bridge, NY and came to SUCOL directly from my undergrad studies at SUNY Oneonta. My interest is primarily in public interest law and criminal law. I chose SUCOL because of the vast opportunities they give to their students not only while they are here, but as alumni as well. It’s truly a community here! Everyone here at SUCOL wants to see you succeed, which is incredibly important to me.
Hi. I’m Dan and I am a two time Syracuse University alum with a BA in political science and an MA in public administration. I like working with others and solving problems. I am an official Maxwell Ambassador. I am from Buffalo, NY. I moved to Syracuse from Washington, DC, where I spent my time promoting inclusive governance through local government and focused around young people, and have worked in the tech sector within SaaS, cyber security, and digital engineering. My interests include disability advocacy, entrepreneurship, and tech/cyber security. I am happy to be a point of connection with others, as well as a source of knowledge.

Why Syracuse Law?: One of the most important things I considered when choosing SUCOL was the physical space I would be in for the next three years. The academic credentials and experiential learning opportunities stood out as well, but the large open spaces and beauty of the school drew me in. I wanted to ensure I would be happy spending most of my time in the library and I am. Syracuse was an ideal location for me as well. It was enough of a change from home to give me a meaningful experience and the rent is more affordable too!

My name is Tina Segreto and I am a non-traditional law student currently in my 1L year. I have my BS in biochemistry from Coastal Carolina University and moved to central NY following graduation to work as an organic chemist in a plant breeding lab at Cornell. I decided to change careers after a year and have spent the past 5 years in Medical Sales. After working in nursing homes through the Covid Pandemic, I decided that the best thing I could do for my family was to follow my dreams and pursue a law degree. I have two daughters, Marcelia (1) and Fiammeta (3), and run a business with my husband. I chose Syracuse Law because Central NY is my home and my community and the reputation of SUCOL in this region is phenomenal. I am interested in Labor and Employment Law and plan to stay in the area after graduation. I wanted a school that offers a vast network of alumni across many different areas of law, and Syracuse offers just that!
