Hi, I’m Alexandra Jennerjahn for Mornings on the Hill. I’m coming to you from my hometown, where we are currently under state orders to avoid large groups. Even though our on campus semester has come to an end, Mornings on the Hill is still dedicated to our main mission: reporting the news. For the next half hour we’ll be bringing you stories about life around the country for Syracuse University students. How are they managing? What’s happening in their homes or neighborhoods?
With a climbing number of people infected with Covid 19, New York State has the largest number of cases reported in the U.S. so far. Whether it’s downstate or upstate, people are dealing with it in a number of ways. Our coverage begins with Marsha Augustin in Westchester County and Cole Johnson in Moravia New York—as Marsha tells us, the national guard is teaming up with another agency to help feed those in need.

From one end of the country to the other, Morning’s on the Hill reporters Bailey Arredono and Chiann Nobrega report from the west coast, on how both students and health care workers are coping. (CHIANN AND BAILEY)
It’s not just the United States—our Jillian Andrews reports from Auruba where she traveled—before travel became an issue.
So, exactly how are Syracuse University students who are still in Syracuse managing as we transition to online learning? Sarah Al-Shaikh has one student’s perspective, from Central New York.
In many cases brothers and sisters are getting to know each other really well, as they all live at home and take classes together. Our Maria Trivelpiece and Dana Casullo bring us more.

Of course our Mornings on the Hill newscasts wouldn’t be complete with a look at sports—and our Alyssa Lynons is in Cincinnati where the beginning of the baseball season – has meant no baseball at all.
So what about those of us who are in the broadcast business? How might we best prepare ourselves to work from home? Our Michelle Knezovic takes a look, from her own bedroom
During our newscast we hope you learn a little about each one of us—and now its my turn, as I took a closer look at the effect this is having on my own family business.
Finally tonight we go north of the boarder, where Juliana D’Urzo is riding out the pandemic, in Toronto.
And that will do it for this week’s edition of Mornings on the Hill. For all of us, wherever we are—thanks for watching!
