Emprise Bank volunteers ran the housing booth for a recent Reality U event in Wichita. Reality U brings a bit of “reality” to students, teaching them about personal finance in an interactive and engaging way.
Students imagine their life as a 26-year-old and complete a lifestyle survey, including questions about their occupation, marital status, use of credit cards, and their current grade point average. This information is entered into a software program that links their answers to a unique, individualized scenario.
These scenarios are distributed to students the day of the Reality U event where they purchase services and/or products that adults typically consider each month. This event actively engages the students to help them understand the importance of education to their financial future.
