KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany — Prospective college students and their parents can get information on schools and scholarships Thursday during a college night hosted by Kaiserslautern High School and the local Army garrison.

More than 80 accredited colleges and universities from the U.S. and Europe will be represented, including dozens of major American schools and the Army, Navy and Air Force service academies, according to organizers. Army, Navy and Air Force recruiters will also be on hand.

About 20 organizations offering scholarships will also have representatives and information on getting help to pay for college.

The college night serves as a substitute for stateside college tours, giving overseas students the opportunity to pick up college applications and information about academic programs without having to return to the U.S., said Kaiserslautern school liaison officer Lynn Rice.

The event runs from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Kaiserslautern Special Events Center, Building 237, on Rhine Ordnance Barracks. It is open to all U.S. identification card holders. Food and beverages will be available.
