The students of Reality Check believe that our problems and the choices we make are not unique to our generation. What is unique, perhaps, is our desire to break the code of silence, a code that often leads to feelings of isolation and despair. We already know what’s right and wrong. We don’t need to hear it again. What we need is the opportunity to express our feelings and receive validation, a chance to understand our peers’ struggles and tools to help us cope.
Reality Check is a voice of one student, of a group of students, and the student body as a whole. It represents a unity that students might usually not have.

Your stories are the heart and soul of Reality Check.
If you have a story that you would like to share, here are the two ways to submit stories:
1.) Give your story to a student staff member. To assure anonymity, your name will never be shared (even with other staff members).
2.) Put your story in the Reality Check slot in the Library. Find the slot at the Circulation Desk underneath the book drop.
If we receive a story discussing a specific plan for suicide or homicide, or information about physical abuse, we are required by law to contact the person who submitted the story to verify that the student's parents are aware of the situation and/or that the student is under the care of a professional.
