FORT RILEY, Kan. (AP) -- Representatives from various colleges and universities are converging on Fort Riley to host an Army education fair for current and prospective students.
The event Thursday will allow soldiers and their families to meet with admissions counselors to learn more about programs at schools in Kansas and across the country. Fort Riley counselors also will be participating to discuss degree selection, financial aid and options within the Army education system.
Participants are encouraged to bring academic records, discharge papers, proof of military training and any other certification soldiers and veterans may have received.
Schools expected to participate include Kansas State University, Fort Hays State University, Baker University, North Central Kansas Technical College and Grantham University.
Fort Riley is home of the Army's 1st Infantry Division, located about 60 miles from Topeka.
