Tour of the Town

Tour of the Town is an exciting element of Orientation Week that manages to simultaneously introduce first year students to the Kingston community and raise money for Shinerama!

The 2014 Tour of the Town will take place on Friday September 5th.  Frosh groups will spend the afternoon touring around the Kingston downtown, stopping in at a variety of stores and other important sites.  This exciting event introduces new students to the many establishments that they can enjoy during their time at Queen’s and in the City of Kingston. The afternoon is an Orientation Week highlight for many students – friendly faces, free samples and the opportunity to explore make for a very fun atmosphere! Many first year students finish the event actively expressing their excitement over all the restaurants they plan to eat at, stores they plan to shop at, and time they plan to spend downtown! This exposure benefits students, and makes the afternoon very valuable for local businesses as well.

Businesses can become a stop on the tour by making a set donation to Shinerama. For those interested, a participation form can be found under this website’s Participate tab, and our contact information is available under the Contact Us tab.  Or, you can access the contract below. Please consider this opportunity to connect with Queen’s students and support our cause!

This event is working on a new website that will help first year students and upper years alike find access the many services in the Kingston community! Stay tuned for its release!
