Sophomores learn life skills during Reality U

On Wednesday, Feb. 1, Hays High School hosted an annual event called Reality U for sophomores in Gym B.

Reality U is a role-play scenario in which students act out a life at 26 years old to learn about how much certain objects and services will cost them in the future.

During the event, each student is paired with another, or they are alone, meaning some people are married and some are not, just as in real life. Students also may have pretend children and learn about how much it costs to raise children. Not to mention, they also learn about incomes and how much their grades now can affect the life they want.

The sophomores were put into four groups and, throughout the day during each block, they rotated groups in and out of the gym. Given that Reality U is an annual event, this means it should be back next year for the current freshman class so they can experience it also!

“Reality U was a very educational experience because it shows us a little bit of what life could be like in the future,” sophomore Kaliyah Bannister said. “It really helped to show me how much everything will cost in the future and how everything works.”
