As for me, I enjoyed my college years because that was the first time my parents actually give me the independence that I was seeking for. I met new friends in college that has similar interest... got to choose my own course and I love it... Simply Love it. I love every moment I spent in my college years. The overnights, defense, projects, rebuttal and outings.. It is hard at times but it's part of it, and I love it. It is worth! What about you guys, which one did you enjoy most? Why?

i enjoyed my college life too more than i enjoyed my high school days. my mother is not that strict so i was able to enjoy my high school plus i had great friends then and some of them are still my friends now. we had a lot of fun times together. but college life is different. i had more freedom during my college days because i was studying far far from home. i was able to meet different kinds of people from different parts of the country and i was able to learn another dialect. my friends were awesome! most of them are outgoing and are really crazy! my friends from high school were outgoing too but they are more concerned with having boyfriends and most of them already has families. but my college friends were like living to have fun in life! boyfriends were important too but building families were far from their plans. we had high ambitions although we are experiencing difficulties in our studies. even so, no matter how hard our studies are, no matter how unreasonable are professors are, we managed to just laugh about it and live our college days with flying colors. and we enjoyed a lot of night outs too. in the beach, in the bar, at school! they were just crazy. and i miss them so.

i enjoyed my college years. Im a nursing graduate. in our school, students are arranged alphabetically. and each class is divide to 4 groups. so starting from our 3rd year level, im with my 10 friends. everyday we're together. in all hospital duties, case studies, lunch break, semestral break... we enjoy eating and singing in videoke bars. we always do overnights and outings... we've been in many disagreements but we're all still friends. until now we do meet and hang out.. actually i can't wait to see them again. we have a group date this saturday... im really excited..

Hi dear jesbellaine, I prefer college life and that was the first time I was to live in a place which was totally different from my house. I found I was as free as the wind after the session dismissed. We went out in group chatting and laughing aloud while hanging around in the shopping mall. Sometimes we ate whatever we like outside and didn’t bother about the college meal. We usually went for picnic the whole day to the nearby sea beach during weekend. The old sweet time was really a pleasant and beautiful remembrance.

of course i enjoy high school life. you know why? you make many funny stuff unlike college start of adulthood a little bit serious than high school. in high school no problem if you won't study you lesson because you can cheat to your teachers and copying from classmates answer is very common. in college you can't do that anymore because professor are very very strict with regards to examinations. college is very hard. that is why high school is the best.

I love high school but not as much as COLLEGE. College is way "mature" than high school. I enjoyed every moment I had with my friends and all the experiences that I've had. Cheers!

I enjoyed both but, I enjoyed college most because I finally let lose and acted like a kid while I was in college. I took school way too seriously in High School and all the years of school before High School. I studied all the time. I spent very little time just being a kid. But, when college came around, I finally let down my hair and had fun. Sometimes, too much fun and, I think that if I had allowed myself the freedom to enjoy being a kid in high school and the years before it, I would have been able to separate my freedom from my need to get good grades in college and I might have done better the first few years in college. Instead, once I tasted freedom, I wanted more and more and more until my dad had to threaten to take my education away from me in order for me to buckle down and work hard again instead of playing hard all the time. But, I did enjoy it! For the first time, I truly enjoyed life!

I hated highschool and i still hate it. Let's just say i was the weird one in class and i didn't had too many friends because we didn't share the same interests. I was always called names: scheleton ( i was very skinny) , gipsy ( i have a darker skin) and on top stinky rocker. In college : i love it though people still look at me like i am a wiredow , at least i found people that have the same interests as mine and the same tastes...almost the same. Now it's funny how things work out! I went back home a few weeks ago and my ex hisghschool mates wanted actually to talk to me...sorry..i don't want to talk to them now!

for me...i enjoyed my high school years because, in high school, i can do many things such as playing while discussing, trippings and etc. projects and assignments in high school is very easy to do unlike in college. in high school times i enjoy most when i'm w/ my friends. because together, i think we can do everything we want except in times of exams

I've always been a little bit of an oddball, so high school was a bit of a nasty time (with all it's cliques and gossip, classmates concerned with boys and fads, more than actual studying, plus I also experienced bullying to some degree, nothing physical though, more like psychological). College was much more tolerable, they have a place for geeks like myself, I was even "semi-popular" at that time, so I was happier being accepted for who I am, rather than being constantly pestered to change and conform.

college was more serious, you cant afford to fool around with your studies while high school was jolly and more carefree so i enjoyed high school more than college. i have lots of fond high school memories, while college not so much, since people are more serious and uptight. not the happy go lucky ones that i was hanging out back in high school.
