High School Vs. College

High School vs. College



There are many similarities, and differences betweeen high school and college. High

School was the best four years of my life. I got in alot of trouble in thoses years, but also

had a blast. Now at J.C.C. it is even better than high school, and my eyes are being opened

to a whole new world. In Toronto High Schol you can get away with just about anything.

Jefferson Community College is a whole different story.

High school begins at eight o'clock, and ends around three. You go to the same

seven or eight classes every day. You also see the same people you have grown up with

since you were little. You have football season, school dances, after school activities,

clubs, boys, plays, and a ton of homework. Also sitting through assemblies, dress

codes,and who could forget getting sent to the office for misbehaving.

College is a whole new step. You go away to an environment all new to you. You

have to leave your friends, and set out to make new relationships to last a lifetime. It is an

emotional step alot of kids are not ready for. You no longer have mom and dad to be at

your side to help you through your every problem. You now have to become

responsible and rely on yourself, and your new friends. You are introduced to new things

such as parties, alcohol, drugs, and sex. You also can decide to take the step of joining

the Greek Club and pledging to a sorority or fraternity. Your classes in college are based

around whatever you are majoring in so you only attend those classes. You need to really

take college seriously because you are building steps to your future, and what you will be

doing the rest of your life. You can schedule your classes when they are convenient

for you, and you have to live on campus for the first few years. You can go to class when

you feel like it, and not have to worry about mom and dad nagging at you to get out of

bed.

Although college and high school seem totally different there are alot of similarities.

Studying is a major part of high school and college and you will not survive without it.

You will do alot of this in both high school and college. You also will have attendance

taken regularly, and alot of work to fit in your schedule. There are all the activities from

high school that you will still be able to participate in in college. You can still go to all of

the sports. If you fail a class in College you can just sign up to take it again. In High

School if you fail a class tough cookies for you. Instead of going by nine weeks like in

High School, you go by semesters. Your holiday breaks are longer in college than in High

School.

I was so excited to graduate and just be on my own. If I could go back to High

School I would in a second. I went on a college visit to The University of Akron and did

not want to leave. There were so many things I loved, especially the freedom. On college

campuses you have to be very careful, and always have someone with you.

There are many similarities between High School and College, but there are many

more differences. College is fun, but you need to remember that every action has a

reaction. You need to have a good head on your shoulders, and be a responsible young

adult before going away. That is most kids problem that they do not realize until they fall

flat on their face and mommy and daddy are not there to help.
