Mornings on the Hill

Wednesday, April 17, 2019

One year ago the Theta Tau fraternity scandal–with racist videos surfacing online– rocked the SU campus.  Our Daniel Booth looks at the impact.  In other campus news, the semester is winding down quickly–and besides final exams and projects, SU students have commencement and summer break on their minds! Our Danielle Bulluck has tips for summer storage of your things, while Landon Wexler reports if you’re graduating in 2020, NOW  is the time to book nearby hotels for family because they sell out fast!  Also, if you love vintage Orange gear, you will want to check out Olivia Proia’s report on a new store–run by a SU super fan–in downtown Syracuse.

MORNINGS ON THE HILL
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17, 2019

GOOD MORNING. I’M FERNANDO GARCIA-FRANCESCHINI. THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR MORNINGS ON THE HILL.
AND I’M MICHELLE HOUSTON. HERE’S A LOOK AT SOME OF THE STORIES WE’LL BE TALKING ABOUT IN OUR FIRST HALF HOUR.

FIND OUT WHAT SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY IS DOING A YEAR AFTER THE THETA TAU INCIDENT TO MAKE STUDENTS FEEL MORE INCLUDED.

AND IF YOU’RE COMING BACK TO S-U IN THE FALL, YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE A LITTLE BIT MORE OUT OF YOUR POCKETS. FIND OUT WHY.

AND AN ALUMNUS OPENS HIS OWN STORE TO SELL S-U APPAREL. REPORTER OLIVIA PROIA HAS THE DETAILS.

ALL THAT PLUS YOUR WEATHER AND ORANGE SPORTS COMING UP ON THIS EDITION OF MORNINGS ON THE HILL.

OUR TOP STORY THIS HOUR. IT’S BEEN ONE YEAR SINCE RACIST VIDEOS MADE BY MEMBERS OF THE THETA TAU FRATERNITY SURFACED ONLINE.

SEVERAL FRATERNITY MEMBERS WERE EXPELLED AND ARE CHALLENGING THAT DECISION IN COURT. THE SCANDAL CONTINUES TO HAVE AN IMPACT HERE AT S-U.

OUR DANIEL BOOTH IS REPORTING LIVE FROM HARRISON STREET AND THE FORMER SITE OF THE THETA TAU HOUSE. DANIEL?

FERNANDO AND MICHELLE, THANK YOU. I’M STANDING RIGHT OUTSIDE THE OLD THETA TAU HOUSE, AND EVEN THOUGH THEIR GREEK LETTERS AREN’T UP ANYMORE, S-U IS STILL DEALING WITH THE AFTERMATH OF LAST YEAR’S HIGHLY OFFENSIVE VIDEOS.

THIS SCANDAL FORCED S-U TO ANSWER AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT QUESTION; HAS THE UNIVERSITY DONE ENOUGH TO MAKE SURE ALL STUDENTS FEEL SAFE AND WELCOME ON CAMPUS?

THE THETA TAU SCANDAL FORCED SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY TO TAKE A LONG LOOK IN THE MIRROR. NEWHOUSE BROADCAST JOURNALISM PROFESSOR HUB BROWN BELIEVES THE BEST WAY TO CONFRONT THESE ISSUES, IS TO TALK ABOUT THEM.

THERE ARE MANY STUDENTS AND FACULTY ON CAMPUS WHO FEEL LIKE THE UNIVERSITY DIDN’T DO A GOOD ENOUGH JOB OF CONDEMNING THE ACTIONS OF THETA TAU, OR MAKE SERIOUS CHANGES UNTIL IT WAS TOO LATE.

THE VIDEO HAS CONTINUED TO OFFEND STUDENTS CURRENTLY ATTENDING S-U, AND PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS, TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHETHER OR NOT SYRACUSE IS THE RIGHT PLACE FOR THEM.
IN ORDER FOR PEOPLE TO FEEL COMFORTABLE ATTENDING S-U, THE UNIVERSITY IS TAKING STEPS TOWARDS BUILDING A DIALOGUE FOR THOSE WHO FEEL THEY DON’T HAVE A VOICE.

WE CONTACTED THE OFFICE OF FRATERNITY AND SORORITY AFFAIRS, AND THEY DECLINED TO COMMENT. THETA TAU WAS PERMANENTLY BANNED FROM CAMPUS. FOR MORNINGS ON THE HILL,

I’M DANIEL BOOTH. FERNANDO AND MICHELLE, BACK TO YOU.

THE BLACK REIGN STEP TEAM WILL HAVE A SHOW NEXT WEEK. WHAT’S THE THEME? WELL –DOES THE NAME SIMBA OR MUFASA SOUND FAMILIAR?
THAT’S RIGHT, LION KING IS THE THEME AND THE STEPPERS WILL USE THEIR FEET TO BRING YOU THE SOUNDS OF THE DISNEY CLASSIC.

TEAM MEMBER TYLER SANCHEZ SAYS PREPARATION FOR THE SHOW IS MORE THAN JUST PRACTICE.
THE SHOW IS EXACTLY A WEEK AWAY, BUT IN THE MEANTIME. BLACK REIGN HAS BEEN CLAPPING, STOMPING, AND WORKING HARD TO GIVE YOU A SHOW YOU WON’T FORGET. IT WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE GOLDSTEIN AUDITORIUM AT SEVEN 30 P-M NEXT WEDNESDAY.

PREPARATIONS TO PERFORM UTILITY WORK ON THE IRVING AVENUE SIDE OF THE DOME HAVE BEGUN. DURING CONSTRUCTION, PEDESTRIANS WILL HAVE TO WALK A NEW PATH. INSTEAD OF WALKING ALONG THE WEST SIDE OF THE DOME THEY WILL BE DIRECTED TOWARDS IRVING AVENUE. DOME ROOF RENOVATONS BEGIN 2020. FOR UPDATES, MAKE SURE TO HEAD OVER TO THE SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY NEWS WEBSITE OR THE CAMPUS CONSTRUCTION WEBSITE.

IF YOU ARE A RETURNING STUDENT–IT’S GOING TO COST YOU MORE TO ATTEND S-U. THE UNIVERSITY IS ONCE AGAIN INCREASING TUITION. OUR KYLAN WATSON IS LIVE IN STUDIO TO TELL US MORE.

THANKS GUYS. THAT’S RIGHT SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY HAS DECIDED TO INCREASE TUITION,
FOR THE 2019-2020 ACADEMIC YEAR. THE JUMP IS ATTRIBUTED IN PART, TO THE COST OF SOME MAJOR CAMPUS PROJECTS AND ALSO STRATEGIC PLANING BY THE UNIVERSITY.

THOMAS RHETT IS A SOPHOMORE AT SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY. HE HAS AN 1870 SCHOLARSHIP, WHICH IS THE HIGHEST VALUE SCHOLARSHIP THE UNIVERSITY GIVES. IT COVERS THE COST OF TUITION FOR FOUR YEARS. RHETT SAYS ASTRONOMICAL COLLEGE COSTS ARE UNFORTUNATELY JUST A FACT OF LIFE.

FIRST YEAR AND TRANSFER STUDENTS WILL HAVE TO PAY A 3-THOUSAND AND THREE-HUNDRED DOLLAR PREMIUM.
THE UNIVERSITY SAID THE NEW PREMIUM IS PART OF ITS 100 MILLION DOLLAR “INVEST SYRACUSE PLAN”
WHICH WILL FUND –AMONG OTHER THINGS–VARIOUS CAMPUS IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS.
TUITION IS ALSO INCREASING BECAUSE OF NEW FEES WHICH WILL HELP PAY FOR PROJECTS LIKE THE RENOVAIONS OF ARCHIBALD GYM.
TUITION IS INCREASING BY.
UNIVERSITY OFFICIALS SAY SINCE THERE IS AN INCREASE OF TUTION–
STUDENTS LIKE TOM WOULD LIKE TO SEE AN INCREASE IN THE AVAILABILITY OF SCHOLARSHIPS AS WELL.
FOR THE 2019-2020 ACADEMIC YEAR, TUITION WILL BE 52-THOUSAND DOLLARS.
WITH ROOM AND BOARD INCLUDED IT WILL COST STUDENTS 70-THOUSAND DOLLARS.
THE UNIVERSITY DID ANNOUNCE THAT IT HAS RAISED 40-MILLION DOLLARS FOR SCHOLARSHIPS AND FINANCIAL AID.
REPORTING LIVE IN STUDIO, I’M KYLAN WATSON FOR MORNINGS ON THE HILL.
YOU KNOW WHAT, MICHELLE? TODAY IS JUST A WEIRD DAY. I WAS WALKING TO THE STUDIO THIS MORNING AND IT WAS FREEZING, BUT I BELIEVE IT’S SUPPOSED TO GET A LOT WARMER.
WELL, FAITH CAIN IS LIVE OUT ON UNIVERSITY AVENUE TO GIVE US THE DETAILS ON WHAT TO EXPECT FOR THE WEATHER TODAY.
THANKS FERNANDO AND MICHELLE.THIS MORNING WAS PRETTY CHILLY, BUT WON’T BE THE STORY FOR THE REST OF THE DAY. THERE ARE ONLY TWENTY FIVE DAYS LEFT UNTIL GRADUATION AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE MAY FINALLY HAVE SOME WARM WEATHER HERE ON THE HILL.BUT NOT QUITE AS WARM AS WHAT WE WOULD LIKE WITH EASTER FOUR DAYS AWAY AND IT IS ABOUT TIME WE GOT SOME NICE WEATHER.IT SEEMS LIKE IT IS ALMOST THAT TIME WHERE WE WILL SEE EVERYONE OUT ON THE QUAD.BUT NOT TODAY EVEN WITH THE WARM WEATHER BECAUSE A LIGHT JACKET IS DEFINITELY A NECESSASITY.NOW LETS TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT IS IN STORE FOR YOU AS YOU HEAD OUT YOUR DOOR.
THE MORNING IS PRETTY COLD.I EVEN I HAD TO SCRAPE MY WINDSHIELD OFF EARIER THIS MORNING WITH THE TEMPERATURE AT A COLD 39 DEGREES.BUT THE SUN IS GOING TO START PEAKING THROUGH THE CLOUDS AND WARM UP TO AROUND 50 WHICH IS WHAT WERE FEELING ABOUT NOW, HOPEFULLY TO GET A START ON THE SUMMER TAN EVERYONE HAS BEEN LOOKING FOR.THE SUN WONT PEAK THROUGH THE CLOUDS ENOUGH TO BREAK 60 TODAY BUT AT LEAST THEIRS NO RAIN PROJECTED FOR THE DAY SO SOAK UP THE SUN WHILE YOU CAN.LATER THIS EVENING THE TEMPERATURE WILL REACH A HIGH OF 58 DEGREES BEFORE DROPPING OFF FOR THE NIGHT.

WELCOME BACK TO MORNINGS ON THE HILL.
A PECULIAR OF SUPER HEROES CALLED THE “ACCESS AVENGERS” TOOK THE PANASCI LOUNGE IN SCHINE STUDENT CENTER BY STORM THIS PAST WEEKEND.
IT’S PART OF THE “CRIPPING”– THE COMIC CON 2019 EVENT HOSTED BY THE DISABILITY CULTURAL CENTER AND THE BURTON BLATT INSTITUTE’S OFFICE OF INTERDISCIPLINARY PROGRAMS AND OUTREACH.
JANICE, ALEXXXUS, AND DALTON WERE JUST SOME OF THE SUPERHEROES SHOWING OFF THEIR POWERS. THE PURPOSE OF THIS EVENT WAS TO DISCUSS HOW DISABILITY IS REPRESENTED IN MAINSTREAM POPULAR CULTURES, SPECIFICALLY COMICS AND MANGA.
AN ASPIRING POET WHO HAS STRUGGLED WITH MENTAL ILNESSES CAME TO THE EVENT AND SPOKE ABOUT THE INCLUSIVITY THIS PLACE PRESENTS.
LOOK AT THAT DOG, SHE’S QUITE THE SUPERHERO HERSELF! THE EVENT GAVE PARTICIPANTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SOME PAINTING, PLAY VIDEOGAMES, AND EVEN DESIGN THEIR VERY OWN ACCESS AVENGER. THE SYMPOSIUM IS A BI-ANNUAL EVENT.
THE INSTITUTE FOR VETERANS AND MILITARY FAMILIES AND THE MAXWELL SCHOOL ARE COLLABORATING TO CREATE A PROGRAM FOR VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS WHO WANT TO PURSUE A CAREER IN POLITICS.
VETERAN REPRESENTATION IN CONGRESS HAS FALLEN FROM MORE THAN 75 PERCENT IN THE SIXTIES TO JUST 19 PERCENT TODAY.
THE VETERANS IN POLITICS PROGRAM IS LOOKING TO CHANGE THAT. THIS INITIATIVE WANTS TO GIVETHOSE WHO HAVE ALREADY SERVED THE COUNTRY’S DEFENSE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE IN A DIFFERENT WAY, POSSIBLY EVEN RUNNING FOR PUBLIC OFFICE.
SOME OF THE CLASSES IN THE CURRICULUM INCLUDE ELECTION LAW, PARTY POLITICS, AND CAMPAIGN FINANCE. THE PROGRAM WILL ENROLL ITS FIRST CLASS LATER THIS YEAR.
GOOD MORNING I’M ALEXANDRIA BENNETT AND THIS IS YOUR ORANGE BUZZ REPORT–WHAT’S TRENDING HERE ON CAMPUS ON SOCIAL MEDIA.
THERE’S A GREEK UNITY FEST BEING HELD BY THE NPHC THIS WEEKEND, A CONCERT IS ON FRIDAY WITH PERFORMANCES BY K CAMP, CITY GIRLS AND MORE FOLLOWED BY A STEP SHOW ON SATURDAY. THE BUZZ SURROUNDING CAMPUS ON SOCIAL MEDIA IS STILL ABOUT KHALID PERFORMING AT BLOCK PARTY NEXT WEEKEND.
NOW RICO NASTY AND KENNY BEATS WILL ALSO BE PERFORMING. IT’S A LOT OF FUN EVENTS HAPPENING AS THE SEMESTER COMES TO A CLOSE SO BE SURE TO GET OUT AND ENJOY YOURSELF. SHAKE OFF THE STRESS OF THE SEMESTER.
ONE MORE THING I CAME ACROSS IS ABOUT CONSTRUCTION HAPPENING WITH THE DOME. THE ROOF RENOVATIONS WILL IMPROVE NATURAL LIGHTING ONLY A LITTLE BIT. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? WE ALL KNOW A LOT OF NATURAL LIGHT IS NEEDED FOR PERFECT SELFIES AND JUST THAT FEEL GOOD ENERGY.
THAT’S YOUR ORANGE BUZZ–I’M ALEXANDRIA BENNETT FOR MORNINGS ON THE HILL.
SENIORS IN THE RENEE CROWN HONORS PROGRAM WILL BE PRESENTING THEIR CAPSTONES IN THE COMING WEEKS.
THE STUDENTS SPENT ALL YEAR WORKING ON THESE INDEPENDENT PROJECTS.
OUR GILAT MELAMED IS LIVE IN THE STUDIO THIS MORNING WITH ONE OF THOSE STUDENTS.
THANKS. I’M JOINED THIS MORNING BY BROADCAST AND DIGITAL JOURNALISM MAJOR NOAH WOLFE.
AND HE’S TRYING TO FIND THE BEST WAY SPORTS CONTENT PRODUCERS CAN PRESENT DIGITAL SPORTS HIGHLIGHTS.
1 ABOUT THE PROJECT.
2 SO WHAT DID YOU FIND IN YOUR SURVEY, HOW SHOULD SPORTS OUTLETS CHANGE THE WAY THEY DO HIGHLIGHTS?
3 THE UNIVERSITY HELPED PAY FOR YOU TO GO TO EUROPE OVER SPRING BREAK TO CONTINUE YOUR RESEARCH, WHAT WAS THAT LIKE?
4 A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE FANS OF SPORTS HIGHLIGHTS, BUT WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO SPEND A WHOLE YEAR WORKING ON THIS?
IF YOU’RE INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT NOAH’S PROJECT HE’LL BE PRESENTING HIS CAPSTONE ON MAY FIRST.
THANKS ONCE AGAIN TO OUR GUEST NOAH WOLFE FOR JOINING US THIS MORNING. I’M GILAT MELAMED FOR MORNINGS ON THE HILL.

WELCOME BACK. ONE S-U GRAD IS BRINGING A BIT OF THE CALIFORNIA FASHION INDUSTRY HERE TO SYRACUSE–
–WITH A BRAND NEW STORE IN ARMORY SQUARE. MORNINGS ON THE HILL’S OLIVIA PROIA HAS MORE.
THANKS FERNANDO AND MICHELLE. I GOT TO HEAD TO SCHOLARS AND CHAMPS – A BRAND NEW VINTAGE STORE THAT JUST OPENED THIS PAST FRIDAY, WHERE I FOUND AN SU GRAD AND SUPER-FAN FINALLY LIVING OUT HIS DREAM. TAKE A LOOK.
BERT AUFSESSER COMES FROM SAN DIEGO… BUT SYRACUSE HAS BECOME HOME TO HIM.
HE SPENT TEN YEARS BACK IN CALIFORNIA AFTER GRADUATION… BUT REALIZED SYRACUSE WAS MISSING SOMETHING. SO HE CAME BACK. AND AS OF FRIDAY, OPENED A STORE.
THE GOAL OF THE STORE IS TO BRING MORE UNIQUE ITEMS TO SYRACUSE, FROM EVERYTHING FROM VINTAGE FINDS TO NEW DESIGNS.
BERT LOVES TO SHOP.
AND NOW, AT 310 S SALINA ST… HIS COLLECTION IS BEING SHOWCASED AND BOUGHT.
HIS GRAND OPENING WAS BIGGER THAN PLANNED.
THE COMMUNITY’S POSITIVE REACTION IS WHY HE PLANS TO STAY.
IF YOU’D LIKE TO SEE MORE OF WHAT BERT HAS YOU CAN VISIT HIS FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM PAGES AT @SCHOLARSANDCHAMPS. HIS ONLINE STORE WILL BE RUNNING WITHIN THE NEXT COUPLE MONTHS. FOR MORNINGS ON THE HILL, I’M OLIVIA PROIA.
OUR 10:30AM ANCHORS KENDRA AND TAMAR JOIN US NOW.
FINALLY THIS HALF HOUR. A GREAT DEAL AT THE BALLPARK THIS WEEKEND IN SYRACUSE. HEAD TO N-B-T BANK STADIUM ON FRIDAY FOR BASEBALL, BEER, AND FIREWORKS.

AND I’M MICHELLE HOUTSON. DON’T GO AWAY. MORNINGS ON THE HILL CONTINUES RIGHT AFTER THE BREAK. KENDRA, TAMAR AND THE REST OF OUR TEAM WILL BE BACK WITH MUCH MORE.

GOOD MORNING I’M KENDRA SHEEHAN. THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR MORNINGS ON THE HILL.
AND I’M TAMAR TURNER. HERE’S A LOOK AT SOME OF THE STORIES WE’LL BE TALKING ABOUT IN OUR SECOND HALF HOUR.
OUR REPORTER SHARES STORAGE OPTIONS FOR STUDENTS THAT DON’T WANT TO LUG ALL THEIR STUFF BACK HOME FOR SUMMER BREAK.
S-U STUDENTS PARTNER WITH LAWAYERS TO HELP WITH ANIMAL CRUELTY CASES.
AND S-U STAFF AND STUDENTS COME TOGETHER TO SHARE STORIES ABOUT THE LATE LORRAINE BRANAHM, DEAN OF THE NEWHOUSE SCHOOL.
ALL THAT PLUS YOUR WEATHER AND ORANGE SPORTS COMING UP ON THIS EDITION OF MORNINGS ON THE HILL.
OUR TOP STORY THIS HALF HOUR.AS THE SEMESTER COMES TO AN END–MANY STUDENTS WHO WILL BE RETURNING TO CAMPUS IN THE FALL HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THEIR STUFF OVER THE SUMMER.
MORNINGS ON THE HILL DANIELLE BULLUCK JOINS US LIVE—SHE FOUND OUT ABOUT STORAGE DEALS AND HAS SOME ADVICE ON THE BEST TIME TO START PACKING FOR THE SUMMER. DANIELLE?
THANK YOU TAMAR AND KENDRA. AT THE END OF EACH YEAR STUDENTS PACK ALL THEIR THINGS UP AND MOVE OUT THEIR DORM OR APARTMENT FOR SUMMER BREAK. AND THE BIG QUESTION FOR MOST STUDENTS EACH YEAR IS– WHAT TO DO WITH THEIR THINGS. BUT ONE STUDENT HAS ALREADY FIGURE THAT OUT.
U-HAUL HAS BEEN PREPARING FOR MONTHS FOR THE SURGE OF STUDENTS COMING TO PACK AND STORE THEIR THINGS AS THE SEMESTER COMES TO A CLOSE.
MANAGER OF U-HAUL ON ERIE BLVD TIMOTHY COLABUFO, HAS A FEW TIPS FOR STUDENT TO MAKE THEIR END OF THE YEAR PROCESS A LITTLE BIT EASIER
COLABUFO SAYS U-HAUL TRIES TO MAKE SURE ITS SERVICES ARE AFFORDABLE FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE OFTEN ON A BUDGET.
OF COURSE S-U STUDENTS AREN’T THE ONLY ONES TRYING TO FIND STORAGE OPTIONS IN CENTRAL NEW YORK–LEMOYNE COLLEGE AND O-C-C STUDENTS ARE ALSO LOOKING INTO THOSE SERVICES. STUDENTS IN THE AREA CAN NOW THINK OF UHAUL OR OTHER STORAGES SERVICES WHEN PACKING UP FOR THE SUMMER.
REPORTING LIVE, I’M DANIELLE BULLUCK FOR MORNINGS ON THE HILL.
TIME FOR ANOTHER CHECK ON YOUR WEATHER FOR TODAY.
FAITH CAIN IS LIVE OUT ON UNIVERSITY AVE TO SHOW US WHAT TO EXPECT.
KENDRA, TAMAR, IT’S AN AVERAGE DAY ON THE HILL. MAKE SURE TO GRAB A LIGHT JACKET THIS MORNING BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH IT IS WARMING UP YOUR WALK TO CLASS THIS MORNING MAY STILL GET A LITTLE CHILLY UNTIL IT WARMS UP LATER TODAY. THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW DAYS YOU MAY BE ABLE TO EVEN BREAK OUT YOUR SUNGLASSES BUT ENJOY THIS NICE WEATHER WHILE WE HAVE IT BECAUSE THE TEMPERATURE IS FINALLY GOING UP HERE ON THE HILL, BUT THE RAIN MAY STOP YOUR OUTDOOR FESTIVITIES. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE FIVE DAY FORECAST AND CHECK OUT YOUR WEEKEND WEATHER
TODAY IS THE SUNNIEST YOULL SEE WITH A HIGH OF 60 FOR THE DAY, BUT THAT SUN WILL NOT LAST LONG FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK. THURSDAY MAY BE WARM, BUT NO SUN TOMORROW SO SOAK IT UP WHILE YOU CAN TODAY BECAUSE YOUR WEEKEND IS FILLED WITH RAIN. FRIDAY THE TEMPERATURE WILL RISE TO THE LOW SEVENTIES, WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR BUT A 100% CHANCE OF RAIN STOPPING ANY SORT OF WEEKEND FUN OUTSIDE. SATURDAY YOU MAKE WAKE UP TO LOUD THUNDERSTORMS WITH ANOTHER HIGH PERCENT OF RAIN AND TEMPERATURES DROPPING TO THE UPPER FIFTIES. YOUR EASTER SUNDAY HAS A 50/50 CHANCE OF RAIN. HOPEFULLY THE DAY WILL HOLD OFF THE RAIN ENOUGH TO GET A QUICK EASTER EGG HUNT IN, BUT I HAVE FAITH IT WILL. SO MAKE SURE TO ENJOY THE SUN BEFORE THE RAIN SETS IN THIS WEEKEND
SPRING IS DEFINITELY HERE SO MAKE SURE YOU ALWAYS HAVE A LIGHT JACKET AND UMBRELLA TO SHIELD OFF THE RAIN THAT IS COMING THIS WEEKEND. I’M FAITH CAIN FOR MORNINGS ON THE HILL–BACK TO YOU IN THE STUDIO.
AFTER THE RECENT LOSS OF DEAN LORRAINE BRANHAM–NEWHOUSE STUDENTS AND FACULTY ARE MAKING SURE HER LEGACY LIVES ON.
IDEAN BRANHAM’S STORY ROOM IS NOW OPEN. THE ROOM IS LOCATED ON THE SECOND FLOOR OF NEWHOUSE TWO, RIGHT NEXT TO FOOD-DOT-COM. STUDENTS, FACULTY AND STAFF ARE INVITED TO STOP BY AND LEAVE A VIDEO OR WRITTEN MESSAGE THAT WILL LATER BE GIVEN TO DEAN BRANHAM’S FAMILY AS A MEMORIAL.
THE SPACE INCLUDES CHAIRS, A COUCH, AND DECORATIVE LIGHTS TO HELP MAKE STUDENTS, STAFF AND FACULTY FEEL COMFORTABLE EXPRESSING THEIR FEELINGS ABOUT WHAT THE DEAN MEANT TO THEM. WITH THE HELP OF VOLUNTEERS THE ROOM WILL BE OPEN UNTIL GRADUATION. BE SURE TO TAKE A GOLD STAR TO SHOW THAT YOU VISITED DEAN BRANHAM’S STORY ROOM.
LIKE MOST PEOPLE.I AM NOT A FAN OF CONSTRUCTION ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS HAPPENING ON CAMPUS. IT ALWAYS SEEMS TO BE AN INCONVENIENCE AND SLOWS THINGS DOWN.
NOW I DO AGREE WITH YOU, BUT WITH THE NEW CHANGES COMING TO SCHINE STUDENT CENTER AND THE BARNES CENTER AT THE ARCH.IT MAY JUST BE WORTH THE WAIT FOR STUDENTS.
THE RENOVATIONS ARE TO SET TO BEGIN IN THE MIDDLE OF MAY, SHORTLY AFTER GRADUATION. INSTALLATION OF ACCESSIBLE PATHS AND THE EXPANSION OF CULUTURAL CENTERS ARE TWO PLANS ON THE AGENDA. OFFICES LIKE THE L-G-B-T RESOURCE CENTER AND THE DISABILITY CULTURAL CENTER WILL BE RELOCATED TO THE 5TH FLOOR OF BIRD LIBRARY.
THE BARNES CENTER WILL BE FOUR STORIES AND INLCUDE A PET THERAPY ROOM, ROCK CLIMBING WALL, MIND SPA AND MUCH MORE. THESE RECOURCES ARE A PART OF THE HEALTH AND WELLNESS FOCUS THROUGH THE STUDENT EXPERIENCE.
HARDSKY SAYS: WE’LL BE USING A MODEL CALLED STEM CARE AND STEM CARE IS A APPROACH THAT WILL REALLY HELP US LOOK AT WAYS THAT WE CAN SUPPORT STUDENTS IN MULTIPLE WAYS THAT RELY FOCUS ON EMPOWERING STUDENTS TO TAKE CONTROL OF THEIR OWN HEALTH AND WELLNESS NEEDS.
THE PROJECTS WILL COST NEARLY 100-MILLION DOLLARS, BUT HAVE BEEN FUNDED THROUGH PRIVATE PHILANTHROPY COMPLETED BY THE UNIVERSITY.
A PROGRAM THAT PARTNERS LAWYERS AND S-U STUDENTS TO ADVOCATE FOR ABUSED ANIMALS IS EXPANDING.
THE VOLUNTEER ADVOCATE FOR ANIMAL ABUSE COURT. ASSIGNS LAWYERS TO CASES INVOLVING ANIMAL CRUELTY CHARGES. THE PROGRAM ALSO HELPS THE ANIMALS FIND SAFE AND LOVING HOMES. S-U LAW STUDENT ALICIA SLATE SAYS THE LONG HOURS WORKING ON THE CASES ARE ALL WORTH IT.
IN ADDITION TO HELPING ANIMALS- THE PROGRAM PROVIDES STUDENTS WITH HANDS ON EXPERIENCE WITH CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS IN COURT. THE PROGRAM CONTINUES TO EXPAND TO COVER MORE AND MORE COUNTIES IN CENTRAL NEW YORK.
COMING UP HERE ON MORNINGS ON THE HILL–
S-U HAS PARTNERED WITH A LOCAL FARM TO SERVE LOCALLY GROWN PRODUCE YEAR-AROUND.
ALSO COMING UP.OUR CONTIBUTER MEREDITH KAVA SHOWS US HOW THE S-U MENS BASKETBALL TEAM IS GIVING OPPURTUNITIES TO MORE THAN JUST DIVISION ONE ATHLETES.
STAY WITH US FOR THOSE STORIES AND MUCH MORE HERE ON MORNINGS ON THE HILL.
AN IMPORTANT RELIGIOUS HOLIDAY IS BEING CELEBRATED THIS WEEK.
FOR STUDENTS WHO DON’T HAVE A CHANCE TO CELEBRATE PASSOVER AT HOME, THE WINNICK HILLEL CENTER FOR JEWISH LIFE HAS A FEW EVENTS PLANNED –AND THEY COULD JUST MAYBE START NEW TRADITIONS WITH FRIENDS ON CAMPUS!
TWO PASSOVERS SEDERS ARE HAPPENING THIS WEEK, WHICH ARE RITUAL CELEBRATIONS ABOUT THE STORY OF PASSOVER. THE FIRST ONE IS THIS FRIDAY IN THE CARRIER DOME. THE SECOND WILL BE A MORE INITIMATE GATHERING ON SATURDAY AT THE WINNICK HILLEL CENTER.
BOTH START AT 6PM. SOPHOMORE PSYCHOLOGY MAJOR MAYA ALPERIN IS ONE OF THE LEAD ORGANIZERS WHO’S BEEN SETTING UP IN THE DOME ALL WEEK IN PREPARATION FOR THE EVENT.
KOSHER PASSOVER MEALS WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE AT THE HILLEL CENTER ALL NEXT WEEK. LUNCH IS FROM 11 AM TO 2 PM AND DINNER IS FROM 5 PM TO 7 PM.
HAVE YOU BEEN NOTICING FRESHER ITEMS AT UNIVERSITY DINING CENTERS?
THAT’S ALL PART OF THE UNIVERSITY’S INITIATIVE TO PROVIDE FRESH PRODUCE YEAR ROUND.
SYRACUSE IS PARTNERING WITH AGBOTIC FARMS – A LOCAL FARM LOCATED ABOUT AN HOUR NORTH OF CAMPUS. THIS NEW COLLABORATION ALLOWS THE UNIVERSITY TO SERVE LOCALLY GROWN PRODUCE ALL YEAR.SOMETHING THAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN DIFFICULT WITH CENTRAL NEW YORK’S CLIMATE.
STUDENTS TESTED PRODUCE FROM THE FARM BACK IN FEBRUARY AND RECEIVED POSTIVE FEEDBACK.
GOOD MORNING, I’M ASHTYN HIRON. WE’RE JOINED IN STUDIO THIS MORNING BY STAFF- SERGENT KASSIE MCDOLE. KASSIE IS IN THE MILITARY MOTION MEDIA PROGRAM AT NEWHOUSE. THIS PROGRAM TAKES A SELECT GROUP OF ACTIVE-DUTY MILITARY PERSONALL AND BUILDS ON THEIR STORY TELLING SKILLS.
QUESTIONS:
1. KASSIE AS YOU’RE NEARING THE END OF YOUR 10 MONTH PROGRAM. YOUR TRANSITION OUT OF SYRACUSE UNIVERISTY IS A LITTLE DIFFRENT THAN THAT OF THE AVERAGE STUDENT. WHERE ARE YOU OFF TO NEXT?
HOW LONG WILL YOU BE THERE?
2. WHAT IS THE ROLE OF A MILITARY JOURNALIST?
3. WHAT IS A SKILL THAT YOU THINK YOU DEVELOPED THE MOST HERE AT NEWHOUSE?
4. HOW DOES HAVING THIS TIME TO FURTHER YOUR SKILLS AND ABILITIES HELP YOU AS YOU TRANSITION BACK INTO MILITARY WORK?
5. I’M A NO SHAME- JOURNALISM NERD. CAN YOU SHARE WITH US ONE OF YOUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENTS THAT YOU’VE HAD AS A MILITARY JOURNALIST?
6. YOU’VE BEEN WORKING ON SOME PRETTY SPECIAL PROJECTS DURING YOUR TIME HERE. WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NOW?
WELL. THANK YOU KASSIE FOR YOUR SERVICE AND FOR JOINING US THIS MORNING. I’M ASHTYN HIRON FOR MORNINGS ON THE HILL.
GOOD MORNING I’M KAYLA BURTON WITH YOUR ORANGE SPORTS UPDATE HERE. ON MORNINGS ON THE HILL. SYRACUSE BASKETBALL SEASON MAY BE OVER, BUT THERE IS A SPECIAL PERSON ON THE SU SIDELINES READY TO TAKE NEXT SEASON BY STORM.
MORNINGS ON THE HILL CONTRIBUTOR MEREDITH KAVA MET WITH AN SU BASKETBALL MANAGER WHO HAS A LARGER THAN LIFE PERSONALITY, DESPITE DEALING WITH A FEW OBSTACLES ALONG THE WAY.
THIS IS HARRY DYDO. HE’S AN SU MEN’S BASKETBALL MANAGER WITH A PERSONALITY THAT GOES UNMATCHED.
THIS IS HIS SECOND SEASON AS A MANAGER, AND HE’S MADE A FEW FRIENDS ALONG THE WAY.
“THEY’RE AWESOME. OSHAE IS MY MAN AND HE’S AWESOME. HE DID A REALLY GOOD DUNK.”
BUT HARRY’S JOURNEY TO BECOMING A MANAGER IS DIFFERENT THAN MOST. HE WAS BORN WITH DOWN SYNDROME AND IS A PART OF A PROGRAM CALLED INCLUSIVE U, IT SUPPORTS STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES AT SU. HE’S THE FIRST INCLUSIVEU STUDENT TO BE A MANAGER FOR THE BASKETBALL TEAM, SOMETHING YOU CAN CREDIT TO COACH JIM BOEHEIM’S WIFE JULI.
“HARRY: YES, JULIE BOEHEIM.
ME: DO YOU LIKE JULI?”
HARRY: I DO. SHE’S A GREAT GIRL SHE IS REALLY GREAT.”
JULI SENT A TEXT ONE DAY TO HARRY’S DAD SAYING THEY’D LOVE FOR HIM TO BE A MANAGER ON THE TEAM, SO A MEETING WAS SET UP. AND YOU COULD BET THAT IT WAS HARRY’S PERSONALITY THAT SOLIDIFIED THIS UNION – JUST ASK HIS INCLUSIVEU BUDDY MARINA RUBIO.
“I THINK WITH HARRY WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET. JUST THE BUBBLY PERSONALITY, VERY FRIENDLY, ALWAYS WAVING TO PEOPLE ON CAMPUS. HE’S VERY POPULAR…ALWAYS GIVING HIGHFIVES”
WHEN HARRY’S NOT ON THE SIDELINES CHEERING ON HIS TEAMMATES, YOU CAN CATCH HIM HANGING AROUND ANOTHER PLACE HE COULD CALL HOME.
“I THINK JUST INCLUSIVEU AS A PROGRAM IS REALLY GREAT, AND IT GIVES STUDENTS LIKE HARRY SUCH A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO BE INVOLVED IN THE CAMPUS AND IN PROGRAMS LIKE SU BASKETBALL.”

‘LET’S GO’
I’M MEREDITH KAVA REPORTING FOR MORNINGS ON THE HILL.
IT’S NEVER BETTER THAN SEEING SPORTS BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER. THANK YOU MEREDITH. DESPITE THE MOST RECENT LOSS TO UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, THE NUMBER FIVE SYRACUSE WOMENS LACROSSE TEAM HAS BEEN DOMINANT ALL SEASON AND NOW GAMES ARE STARTING TO WIND DOWN AND ACC TOURNAMENT PLAY IS APPROACHING.
THE ORANGE WILL CELEBRATE ITS NINE SENIORS BEFORE PLAYING THE BIG RED FOR THE 23RD TIME. AND SYRACUSE LEADS THE ALL TIME SERIES– HAVING WON ALL TEN CONTESTS PLAYED AT THE CARRIER DOME.
AFTER TAKING A LONG 10 DAY BREAK SYRACUSE SNAPPED ITS SEVEN GAME WINNING STREAK LOSING 11-5 AGAINST UNC ON SATURDAY.
JUNIOR EMILY HAWRYSHUK RECORDED A HAT TRICK AGAINST THE TAR HEELS, INCREASING HER SEASON TOTAL TO 54 AND HER CAREER TOTAL TO 140. SHE IS NOW TIED FOR NINTH PLACE ON SYRACUSE’S ALL-TIME GOALS SCORED.
WITH ONLY THREE LOSSES ON THE SEASON THE WOMENS TEAM WILL HOST ITS SENIOR NIGHT TONIGHT AT THE CARRIER DOME TAKING ON CORNELL AT 7 PM.
IT WASN’T ONLY THE WOMENS TEAM WHO TRAVELED TO NORTH CAROLINA. THE MENS TEAM PACKED ITS BAGS AS WELL AND CAME HOME WITH THE VICTORY.
THE NUMBER ELEVEN ORANGE PUT A DOMINANT THIRD QUARTER TOGETHER OUTSCORING THE TAR HEELS 4-0.
AND THIS GAME WAS UNLIKE THE OTHERS, A BROTHER TO BROTHER MATCH UP. SENIOR NATE SOLOMON TOOK THE FIELD AGAINST HIS YOUNGER BROTHER NICKY SOLOMON WHO STARTS FOR THE TAR HEELS.
BUT THE OLDER BROTHER MADE HIS STATEMENT. NATE LED THE ORANGE IN GOALS FINISHING WITH A HAT TRICK.
HEAD COACH JOHN DESKO HAS NOW PASSED LONGTIME MARYLAND HEAD COACH JACK FARBER FOR 18TH ON THE NCAA DIVISION I WINS LIST, HE HAS 252 WINS.
AFTER AN EXCITING SEASON TRAVELING TO THE CAMPING WORLD BOWL THE SYRACUSE MENS FOOTBALL TEAM WAS BACK IN ACTION ON SATURDAY FOR ITS 2019 SPRING GAME.
WITH NOW FORMER STAR QUARTERBACK ERIC DUNGEY HANGING HIS ORANGE JERSEY UP, TOMMY DEVITO IS THE PROJECTED STARTING QB FOR THE CUSE.
BUT THE SPOTLIGHT WASN’T ONLY ON THE OFFENSIVE SIDE, MANY OF THE LINEBACKERS INCLUDING MOE NEAL SHOWED THEIR POTENTIAL AS WELL.
AND REGARDLESS OF BEING ABLE TO PUT BOTH OFFENSE AND DEFENSE TOGETHER HEAD COACH DINO BABERS SAID THE TEAM IS LACKING A PRETTY SIGNIFICANT FACTOR.
BABERS SAID HE LOOKS FORWARD TO SEEING THE TALENT EMERGE WITH NEW PLAYERS FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON.
SYRACUSE WOMENS SOFTBALL HAS HAD A BIT OF A ROCKY SEASON THIS YEAR, FROM 28 STRAIGHT GAMES ON THE ROAD AND NOT MANY WIN, TO INJURIES, THE ORANGE HAVE BEEN PUTTING THE PIECES OF THE PUZZLE TOGETHER TRYING TO MAKE ITS COMEBACK SEASON.
THE ORANGE ARE CURRENTLY 18-22, COMING OFF OF THREE GAME SERIES LOSS TO DUKE UNIVERSITY.
DESPITE THE LOSS ALEXA ROMERO DOMINATED THE FIRST GAME ON THE MOUND PLAYING A BIG ROLE IN CUSE’S 4-0 SHUTOUT VICTORY AGAINST THE BLUE DEVILS.
THE ORANGE WILL TRAVEL HAMILTON, NEW YORK TO TAKE ON COLGATE TODAY FOR A 4’O CLOCK GAME.
THAT’S YOUR SPORTS UPDATE—I’M KAYLA BURTON
STILL TO COME HERE ON MORNINGS ON THE HILL.
IT MAY BE TOO LATE TO BOOK HOTELS FOR THIS UPCOMING COMMENCEMENT.BUT IT’S PRIME TIME FOR STUDENTS THAT GRADUATE IN 20-20.
1. PUT MON GFX HERE
WELCOME BACK — FOR US AND MANY OF YOU.HERE AT MORNINGS ON THE HILL, WE ARE COUNTING THE DAYS UNTIL GRADUATION.
OF COURSE MANY FAMILY AND FRIENDS WILL BE TRAVELING TO SYRACUSE TO JOIN IN THE CELEBRATION–AND OFTENTIMES FINDING A PLACE FOR THEM TO STAY CAN BE A CHALLENGE. OUR OWN LANDON WEXLER IS HERE WITH MORE.
COMMENCEMENT WEEK IS ON THE MINDS OF SYRACUSE SENIORS AROUND CAMPUS — AND FOR MANY, HALF THE PROCESS LEADING UP TO GRADUATION HAS BEEN COORDINATING WHERE THEIR FAMILY CAN STAY IN THE AREA. IT TAKES A LOT OF ORGANIZATION–ALMOST A YEAR IN ADVANCE. THAT MEANS IT’S TIME FOR NEXT YEAR’S GRADUATES TO START PLANNING NOW.
“WE’RE SCRAMBLING RIGHT NOW TO FIND A HOTEL, LITERALLY AS WE SPEAK I SENT MY MOM THE DATES BECAUSE SHE’S FREAKING OUT THAT I DIDN’T GIVE HER THE DETAILS SOONER BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS BOOKED…”
20-20 SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY GRADUATES ARE FACING THE HARSH REALITY THAT GRADUATION IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER – AND PARENTS ARE FACING REALITY THAT THEY NEED TO BOOK HOTEL ROOMS FOR NEXT YEAR WITHIN THE NEXT MONTH.
THE GENERAL MANAGER OF THE SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY SHERATON, DAVID HEYMANN SAYS GETTING A HOTEL ROOM ON THE UNIVERSITY HILL IS HARDER AND MORE EXPENSIVE THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT.
“$499 AND UP. THE RATES ARE HIGH AND MAY GO OVER 500 AND PREMIUM SUITES WILL BE EVEN HIGHER THAN THAT. SO, THERE’S NO DISCOUNTS TO ANY OF OUR ROOM RATES.”
NOT TO MENTION, ROOMS AROUND CAMPUS SELL OUT FAST. THE CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER OF WOODBINE HOSPITALITY GROUP WHICH OWNS THE HOTEL SKYLER WASN’T AVAILABLE FOR AN INTERVIEW BUT SAYS HE EXPECTS THE ROOMS TO SELL OUT IN ABOUT 15 MINUTES ON MAY 8TH – THAT’S WHEN THEY PLAN TO START TAKING RESERVATIONS.
IF THAT 500-DOLLAR PRICE TAG PER NIGHT DOESN’T SCARE YOU AWAY AND YOU CALL THE RIGHT DAY AND TIME, A YEAR IN ADVANCED, THEN THE SHERATON, HOTEL SKYLER AND CROWNE PLAZA LOOK TO BE THE HOTELS TO TURN TO FOR PROXIMITY TO CAMPUS. BUT IF YOU WANT TO SAVE A FEW BUCKS, MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE LOGGING ON TO AIRBNB.
“EVEN AROUND CAMPUS THERE AREN’T A WHOLE LOT OF AIRNB’S SO THEY’VE BEEN LOOKING MORE OUTWARD TO LIKE AREAS IN THE FINGER LAKES, 30 MINUTES AWAY”
IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON BOOKING AN AIR B-N-B, LOOK INTO THAT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. AS OF LAST NIGHT, ONLY FIVE LISTINGS WERE LEFT IN THE UNIVERSITY AREA FOR COMMENCEMENT WEEKEND 20-20.
FOR MORNINGS ON THE HILL, I’M LANDON WEXLER.
I’M ALEXANDRIA BENNETT AND HERE’S WHAT’S GOING ON THIS WEEKEND HERE ON THE HILL.
THIS FRIDAY, CAMPUS ORGANIZATION ASIAN STUDENTS IN AMERICA IS HOSTING THEIR MR. ASIA PAGEANT. IT’S A MALE PAGEANT THAT FOCUSES ON CURRENT ISSUES REVOLVING AROUND ASIAN AMERICANS AT SU. THEIR GOAL IS TO TACKLE THE STIGMAS PLACED ON ASIAN MALES AND THE ISSUES BEHIND MASCULINITY. THERE WILL BE ENTERTAINING PERFORMANCES BY STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS AND GUEST ARTISTS. IT’LL BE FROM 7 PM TO 9 PM IN THE GRANT AUDITORIUM.
IN SPORTS, ROWING BOTH MEN AND WOMENS WILL BE OPENING THIS WEEKEND. THE WOMEN WILL BE AT CLEMSON WHILE THE MEN WILL BE PLAYING NAVY AND CORNELL IN MARYLAND.
SOFTBALL WILL BE PLAYING PITTSBURGH AT HOME AT 1PM.
MEN’S LACROSSE WILL BE AT NAVY IN MARYLAND ALSO AT 5PM.
THIS SUNDAY IS EASTER AND THERE WILL ALSO BE A SOFTBALL GAME AT HOME VERSUS PITTSBURGH AT 12PM.
