Students Get a Dose of Reality with 'realityU'

Holden Schindler, 8th grade Callaway Middle School student, walked into the school gymnasium with 74 of his classmates and saw the area transformed into a community that was prepared to give the students a reality check. The event, realityU, was sponsored by PNC Bank and Communities in Schools.

A total of 150 eighth grade students participated. When they entered the facility, each person was provided a profile that included their income, marital status, credit score, career field, credit card debt, student loan status, and other critical life elements that can impact lifestyle and financial wellbeing choices adults make. They also received a realityU Student Passport where they could record monthly transactions and associated costs, and also receive a ‘passport stamp’ for the stations they visited during the hour-long exercise.
