High school days or College days?

What do you consider would be your best schooling days? Is it high school or college? For me, it's high school. It was a lot fun. Having classmates that you could hang out with after school, breaking rules, sleepless nights of projects and home works, strict teachers... All that fun stuff. College is a bit serious for me 'cause it a preparation of you having a career and all that stuff.

I liked college better because I felt more independent and in control of my own destiny. Plus, I have to admit that I'm the studious type so I didn't mind the extra work and even enjoyed some of the unique opportunities to learn at college. It's not my high school's fault, but they didn't have the funding to have a big library, big computer labs with expensive and specialized software, or well-stocked chemistry labs like my college did. I had friends in both high school and college who were cool. I think my high school friends were a bit more loyal, but my college friends were a bit more interesting and fun to be around. Sadly now I've lost contact with most friends from both groups!

My high school friends are loyal, too. They're awesome. I haven't had much contact with them for a while now but we get to see that we hang out together when there's an occasion or something.

Better were college days but high school was a lot of fun too! My best days were a year between a college and university when I took a year off.

Wow, college and university, sounds like you have a lot of studying done. I love high school 'cause that's back in the days that we are young and carefree.

I would say college had the better years for me. I felt like an adult without all of the responsibilties, and I loved living on my own! I think college life teaches you things that are very valuable for the rest of your life experiences. Not that High School wasn't fun, but I just remember going to my 10 year reunion and realizing how people really don't change all that much.

I guess you had a pretty bad experience when you're in high school then. But yeah, I agree that college really feels like being an adult without responsibilities, you know, schooling is your only problem not unlike after you graduate that you have to work and stuff. Thanks for responding.

i had more fun in college, haha, when i was in high school, i was more reserved and kept to myself most of the time, i had issues with some of my "backstabbing" grade schoolmates who also went to the same high school class with me so i became more aloof to some of my high schoolmates. when i went to college at another city, i had more opportunity to establish myself and get people to know the real me, so i made more friends, went out more, and socialized a lot. its great to be accepted for who you really are and not be tarnished by what other people say you are.

My high school days were fun than my college days. I enjoyed a lot in my high school days because our classmates are the same. We can hand around with friends anytime because we are attending the same class, teacher and classmates while in College, you classmates in every subject are mot the same except your major subjects. It is not fun because you have lots of requirements to do in order to pass the course.

Ofcourse School days. Cmon, being a kid and seeing urself on top of the world, wasn't that a great feling. When dad's shoulder was the highest place on earth, When the only thing that hurt was broken knees and not broken hurts.... its ofcourse school days. Though i had my college days also equally enjoyable but yet, school was school.

I love my High School life way better than College. On my first 2 years in HS, it wasn't really much of interesting, but on my 3rd and 4th year, I have gained confidence and have known almost all the 500 students in my batch (there were 10 sections, 50 students in each). My HS wasn't really an ordinary school, it was a business HS. I have learned Typing, Foreign Language, Stenography, and a lot more. We did a lot of performances and theater shows which actually helped me to become a a better person in way to meet people. I have gained true friends from HS too. College was a bit boring, though the first 2 years for was really a good experience, I was somewhat a popular one in our class, and used to get liked by most students and even my crush at that time. But when my class got de-blocked and had to go on our own way to pick our subjects and class time on my 3rd and 4th year days (which commonly happens when students reach their Junior year in my school), things went differently. That's also the time, I had a bf that most of my time was spent with him, every after class. So I would say, HS was the best that I have enjoyed every single moment of it!

I can say that my College days are more memorable to me than High School days because i have met more friends in College than in my High School days. I have been more active in school when i was in College than in my High school days. We really don't have prom nights during our days in high school because the school did not allow because of fraternity killings and teen pregnancies so i did not enjoy my high school days. I enjoy College because i came to know my brothers and sisters in Christ. And we share the Gospel to every fellow student we come along and meet in the campus. We do help each other do assignments and projects too. So i can say that God blessed me again during my College days.

my first two years in high school was terrible for me i have been bullied by rich kids (i was in an all girl exclusive school) and never had friends at all. it was during my junior year that i was able to gain some. but when i was in college, i have lots of friends. that was the time i found three of my best friends and until now, we're still pretty tight. full of great memories. =))

i would say i love my college life better than high school life..'m more exposed to the world, carry bigger responsibilities, became more independent therefore, i grew more, became more mature..the stuffs that you do in high school can also be done in college,,cutting classes, hanging out with friends, breaking rules..freedom is wider in the college life..because it is expected from us to be more responsible of our actions because we are not children anymore..

I prefer my college days because I had so much fun living on campus with my friends and I learned more about myself when I was in college as opposed to high school. I enjoyed everything I learned and did in college I was more free to be myself and know I would be successful.

I like college a lot better. I feel like there is a lot more freedom and less judgment from others. High school kids were mean.

Sorry but I haven't experience my college life, anyways I just want to post my answer here. We know that HS days and College days were both different. I can say that in my HS days, its like you're just an innocent girl and more on curiousness in surroundings...You'll really gonna miss your HS days especially when you cut classes (LOL!), cheating on exams days, going home late, etc...More school activities & fieldtrips, community services, lots of homeworks and projects to do but its really fun but sometimes it makes you lazy and can cause you not to go to school.
