I am a college student,In my opinion,firstly,the aim we're shooting for.In high school.we did all we can to enter a good university.But in college,we're trying our best to obtain as much knowledge and skill of getting along well with others.Secondly,the extent of freedom.Now we are distributing our spare time freely,but in high school,almost nothing.The third one is the atmosphere we're living in.High school life was just like a place for learning and eating and sleeping,The three points make up all our life.College life is quite another.It's more like society.Apart from the above points,we'll have to learn how to live and develop. What do you think? Would you mind giving your idea? There's always an ear reserved for you.

There is a huge difference between college life and highschool life. During highschool you get to play around more often and take your subject not seriously and still you get to pass. It is no sweat when your in highschool because you can compromise ally your faults like no assignments, absences, and lates. College life is a different way around. In here it is more serious and the subjects are far more harder and specialized than those offered during highschool time. You cannot also compromise all your faults here in colege because instructors our strict when it comes to discipline. For me, highscool life is the best ever.

High school, in my opinion, is structured. Things are pretty much the same each day. When you get to college, things are different. You are your own person. If you don't want to go to class, you don't have to. You immediately have your own independence - a sense of freedom. It is your choice. You or your parents have paid a lot of money for this college education. It is up to you what you decide to do with this.

I could noticed that we can be less serious in high school and still get passing grades. College life is more serious and it requires more hard work. You cannot absent yourself from the class too often because if you miss a project or an exam, it will be difficult to get a make-up for those.

High school life is different from college life,In my opinion the most difference is that , in our high school the most important thing is to study and get a good mark .however ,just as you say college is a small society,it is the first step before you mingle with the society,So you should learn how to communicate with the different people and the most important thing you should learn how to study.This my view;-)

High school life is immatured and the college life is matured.. College life = School Life + Maturity + Fun + Responsibility

i think the most different between high school life and college life is that,you must work hard in the high school just for the examination of entering a good college,and the teachers are much more strictly,but if you study in college,you may hvee much time to do what you want,and the freedom is the feature in college,you can choose the lessons you like,take part in the organization you like,of course if you want to study well,you much work hard just as in high school.

When I was in high school, there is not so much exposure as when I was in the college. In the college I was free to choose what subject I want to learn, and to choose which society I want to be active in. I can choose to stay in a hostel or rent a room outside the college. It gave me freedom, and at the same time responsibility towards my own self. Being in college made me grow more matured and look forward to achieve success in life.

I agree with your opinion,the differences are the freedom and the goal.
