Though highschool was fun and memorable time for me stil i can say that college is far more better. I love college because i have much freedom to go out with my friends and i was also allowed to go home late as compared to my highschool years, my curfew was only 8pm. I have more free time in college since my class schedule was not fixed and i have time to study my lessons for the next subjects not like in highschool wherein from 7am-4pm all we do was to listen to our teachers and answered alot of quizzes and we really dont have time to study. the best thing about college for me was when i was eventually allowed by my parents to have a boyfriend not like in highschool, when my parents find out that i have a bf, they actually fetch me after my class and not allowed to go out during weekeends. To sum it all, i love college because of the so called INDEPENDENCE.

Reminds me of my highschool. It was home-school and school to home for me basically. No night outs, or even unsupervised going outs with friends, no boyfriend and so on too... So when i got into college and experienced my so called independence, i was already starting to realize college life was way better. (",)

Personally I preferred college better, simply because I was on my own I guess. It was the first time in my life that I was responsible for taking care of me and not having to run to mom and/or dad when I had a problem. I feel it helped me to grow up and I got to experience more things than I would have were I still living at home. Also, I acheived my goal and graduated. This led to me getting my first "real" job.

For me college is better than high school. First of all, we are all male in high school, unlike college which is mixed. Of course relationships would follow. Secondly, I can choose whatever schedule I want, and I really hate morning schedules. So it really fits me, starting to go to school during afternoon and ending up during night time. Boy it was really fun.

Personally I enjoyed college much more than high school. First of all, in college I was able to plan my own schedule and choose courses and programs of study that were most interesting to me. You can do that to a certain extent in high school, but there are more general course requirements and regulations. Also, I went to a high school where most other students were not interested in academics. I hadn't quite grown into my own skin yet and felt like I didn't fit in. Whether I really was one or not, I always perceived myself as a misfit. I was shy and missed out on many opportunities to socialize and make friends because of it. In college, though, I came into my own. I lived on campus and got involved in my school. I met others who shared my interests and managed to work in the socializing and partying that most did in high school while still getting my studying done. I was busy, challenged, had lots of friends and was always surrounded by interesting and eclectic people. Yes, I'd have to say college was my element. So much so in fact that I work at one now!

Better in what sence? Freedom is better in college. Education is in both. But you are also treated more grown up in college.

High School life is more exciting for me because of my closeness with my best friends and my crushes :)

high School life is also the bonding we make among friends. I agree. That's why they say its where our foundations are built. Good memories in High school:)

for me it was getting to college, because in college you've got all the freedom you could have without worrying that someone will bother you, you are free to do everything you want, go to any place you wanted to go to, attend or not your classes... drop the subjects with a terror professor ^_^

Lol for me too. College life was more fun. I had freedom to do things... There were more things to do aside from classes and stuff. There were more options. More life to it. Im sure high school life is good because as what the previous reply said gave us foundation, but College life just rocks for me for all d opportunities and options it gave me.

In my opinion,I loved high school way more than college. Don't give me wrong,I had a good time at college as well but I think that I felt more responsibilities(of course) while I was in college. I have more free time and more free mind when I was in high school,I was simply enjoying my life without having a mature thought.

I dont know really what of these are the best but from my point of view i think that college is much more funny. In the other hand is the high schools so they are very interesting for people who like studying a lot. Have a nice day on mylot and happy earnings also.

I enjoyed college way more than high school. I had more friends and more freedom. My parents were pretty strict in high school. I pretty much went to school, came home and that was it. In college I was able to get out more with my friends and enjoy life a little more.

I enjoyed my high school life... but it turned out that I like college better. In college, i learned how to be independent, to survive, and in my college days, i came to meet the love of my life :)

high school is still better for me, because things were just all fun and about friends and happy stuffs. i just find college as a very demanding phase on my life because it's the time that i am mastering a expertise for a cosen career, unlike high school, where everything was just plain simply and all easy and fun, plus my friends at high school were more genuine and true rather at college because college really is like a jungle for me.

good question! i'd say college over high school. simply because your their through your own choice- your not being forced and you study what you like. the only part of high school i didnt like was crappy subjects like maths (sorry any maths lovers out there!). also everyones mature in college whereas at high school its a popularity contest and girls can be b*tchy. 1 thing about high school though is that it is funny winding teachers up! if you tried doing that in college they wouldnt waste their time with you but their forced to in high school!

For me I enjoyed my high school life better because I was a little naughtier. when I got to college I became more serious. I have more interesting memories in high school like counting crushes and admirers LOL.

For me school life is better than college life. In school the relationship with teachers & students are more than a college. In shcool the teachers spend their valuable time with students. We get the foundation in school. No person will forget their school life.
