College life is far different from high school life

“Learn as much as you can while you are young, since life becomes too busy later.” 


Growing up, I’ve heard adults say, “High school was the best six years of their life!” Because of that, I expected to have a blast when I entered freshman year. I didn’t realize that if I also wanted to have the best six years of my life, I needed to do things I actually enjoyed doing.

Even right now, all my classes are extremely rigorous, time consuming, somewhat distasteful and just all around stressful. I definitely haven’t been having the best time of my life these past six years of my high school life. But I also know people who are in every extracurricular in existence, who are also taking amazing and interactive classes – they seem to be really enjoying their high school experience. While I don’t regret taking the classes I’m taking, I could have had the chance to make more meaningful memories and having more friends to be close.So if I  want to make high school the best six years of my  life, I do the things that I enjoy and also I want to have a good academic standing, then unfortunately, those enjoyable activities may have to be put aside. That’s why finding a balance is an important skill to master.

My experience is I’ve gone into the bathroom and spotted a couple of kids cutting class in the stalls. I also can’t recall how many times I’ve seen a lot of students taking their time talking to their friends outside instead of getting inside and answering their assignments.But if the deadline is coming their is the time that they get rush in answering their assignments. In other words, high schoolers are more inclined to do things if their friends are also doing it. This isn’t meant to put a bad reputation on doing things with friends. Why else are study groups so common in preparation for finals?

If high school has taught me something, it’s that our friends and the people we surround ourselves with have a tremendous influence on our own beliefs and actions. It is absolutely imperative, then, that we exercise extreme caution with the people we allow to enter our lives. I’m proud to say the friend group I’ve been with throughout my high school experience has been one that has taught me great skills, encouraged me to learn from my mistakes, and been perceptive to my flaws.

The high school days are the best days of my life. I clearly remember my first day at school and my memories are still vivid.I can still feel how warmly I was welcomed at school. That truly defines the importance of school life for a students like me.As a student, I learned, cooperated, got myself motivated and groomed under the best company of my best friends. I remember the first year love and wishes from my teachers.That is why I always regard my primary school life memories as the treasure for my life.I have the best friends today and the learning experience that I got from my high school. The high school life memories are the invaluable part. I did a lot of blunders and mistakes.But thanks to my sincere friends and true teachers I was always rescued. That is how I learned from high school life the true meaning of cooperation and love.I had a lot of shortcoming. I still remember how ignorant I was during my school days. My school life memories make me realize how important high  school life is for anyone.Had it not been, I would have surely missed many things in my life. I would not be having good friends, good knowledge, good experience and the good memories.

The high school life days are very much filled with excitement. During high school life period, one becomes matured enough to understand the value of time.My high school life is a wonderful chapter in my entire memories. In that period I learned truly. I directed myself. I learned dedication, hard work, motivation and self actualization.One of my best high school memory was the day when I am the part of the math club officer in my grade 11nth year. It was the moment of great pride for me, my parents and for my school. The Principal of our school gave me a shield. That shied is still with me.I always had the habit, during my school life, to note down everything on a diary. During my free time I always open that diary. It helps me soothes my pain. It fulfills me with confidence and courage. I miss a lot friend of mine, crushes and my ideal type that I want to have someday. I have a good amount of school life pictures.Those school life pictures are like my best memories. I remember the days we celebrated, the extracurricular activities we took part in.I remember how happy were my parent when I obtain first position in my entire school. That’s the best part of my school life. It never let me be bored.

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe.”


College is going to change my life. That change can be positive, or negative…it is solely up to the current situation. First off, college is what you make it to be because you are now responsible and accountable for your future. Gutting declares, ”Students, in turn, need to recognize that their college education is above all a matter of opening themselves up to new dimensions of knowledge and understanding I am always afraid. This is not the way to live life. Even as I write, I still remain afraid. And perhaps I am expecting too much from what little initiative I supposedly take. I was never one to take on a strategically-thought out plan and utilize them into life goals. In either case, I have realized a “goal” that was far more of a bleak impediment than a noble fantasy I romanticized for nearly a year. At first, it was not such a grand scheme due to the initially modest circumstances.During college life I would learn the basic etiquette concerning convivial propulsion as during college existence I would display the etiquette in accordance with the maximum quantity possible.

“Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest when you haven’t planted.”

College life is a big transition from school life. We go through a lot of changes when we enter college. Our schools were a safe place where we had grown up and spent half our lives. The transition to college is so sudden that you’re no longer protected by your teachers and friends of my school time.College life poses a lot of challenges in front of me.I am  now in a place that have a full of unfamiliar faces where you need to mingle in. It teaches me to socialize and form opinions of our own. In college, students learn their free will and they go on to become more confident and composed.In school life, we were always dependant on our friends or teachers. College life teaches us to be independent. It makes us stronger and teaches us to fight our own battles. It also makes us serious about our careers. We make decisions that will affect our future all by ourselves, as in school life our parents did it for us.Additionally, in schools, we viewed our teachers as our mentors and sometimes even parents. We respected them and kept a distance. However, in college life, the teacher-student relationship becomes a bit informal. They become more or less like our friends and we share our troubles and happiness with them as we did with our friends.

“An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.”

There are some very big differences between high school and college life. Both are fun in their own ways and both have unique experiences to offer you. But there is no denying that there are some fun and important differences between the two in terms of social life, academics, and sports. Finally, one of the biggest differences is how much more you are in control of everything. We’ll go over all of these differences here, and get you the lowdown on high school vs college life.In short, they are extremely different. In college, you can create your own future and your own identity. You get an entirely new social group and newfound independence. You are in full control of who you become.College is unlike high school, where your identity and reputation has remained the same for a while. You choose your classes and can study anything and you are treated as an adult in those classes. So say goodbye to cliques, set schedules, and mandatory classes, and say hello to choice and independence.High School teachers present material to help you understand the material in the textbook, often writing information on the chalkboard to be copied in your notes. College professors may lecture nonstop, give you illustrations, provide background information, or discuss research about the topic you are studying. You will be expected to be up to date on all assigned readings and be able summarize it, so good notes are critical.

“The aim of the college, for the individual student, is to eliminate the need in his life for the college; the task is to help him become a self-educating man.”

  1. Interesting perspective — to view one life as if it were two (or more) separate lives.
