TD Bank Supports Student Success Program

Kennee Torres is one of the students who benefited from the TD Bank grant by receiving a new laptop to use for schoolwork.

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.
