College Tours

Planning On Touring?

Many high school students are finishing up their sophomore and junior years of high school and plan on heading to college once they graduate.  Before they embark on the next chapter of their lives, they will have to make a decision on which college they wish to attend.  Many students will want to explore options both in and out of state.  Many families combine college touring with a vacation or try and tour all of the prospective colleges at one time.

Before heading out on a college tour, Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service recommends these tips:

•    Make a list of potential colleges
•    See a variety of school types (private, public, located in urban areas, located in rural areas, large student body, small student body)
•    Check out the college’s website to learn about college tours and their requirements
•    Plan your visit while classes are in session
•    Schedule your college tour
•    Ask questions during your college tour
•    Learn about financial aid while visiting the college
•    Ask for a college interview to ask questions with an admissions counselor
•    If your student is interested in a particular field of study, ask if you can get a specialty tour added that includes that interest
•    See if your student can sit in on a class
•    Keep notes
•    Schedule time to tour the area around the campus so your student can see what the neighborhood is like

College tours allow a student to experience a school and make a decision on whether the school is the right fit.  Before traveling make sure that your shoes, bags, and luggage are ready to go.

Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service offers repairs for all types of shoes such as athletic shoes, boots, heels, and orthopedic shoes.  We can repair or replace soles, stitching, tips, heels, and more.  We also offer orthopedic shoe modifications.  After repairing your shoes, we polish and clean them.

While taking your college tour, you will want to have a bag with you.  A backpack or handbag can be helpful to store handouts, an umbrella, water bottle, guide map, and more.  We offer a wide variety of repair services for bags of all type such as purses, handbags, and leather bags.  We can repair or replace buckles, zippers, stitching, straps, and more.

Your college tour might involve traveling out of state or you might decide that you need more than a few hours to truly experience a campus.  Before leaving on your college tour, make sure that your luggage is ready to go.  We repair luggage from major brands such as Atlantic, Delsey, Travel pro, Ricardo, Skyway, Victorinox, Briggs and Riley, and more.  We can also service luggage that is out of warranty.  We can repair or replace luggage wheels, luggage zippers, luggage zipper sliders, luggage feet, luggage carry handles, luggage retractable handles, and more.
