The TD Bank Charitable Foundation has awarded Dominican College a $5,000 grant to support its Student Success Program. Students in the program who need laptops to do schoolwork are able to access them through this grant.
Kennee Torres, a junior communication studies student, is among the students who received a new laptop. He is using it to do schoolwork and log into his classes remotely. “It benefits me in a lot of ways,” he said. “It’s much easier than having to use my cell phone.”
The Student Success Program provides regular enrichment labs and a “ReCharge” class that educates students on effective study habits, notetaking, time management, and personal finance. The additional structure and support put students on a path to improved academic performance.
