It realy depends on the environment that you get into which determines if one is better than the other. If you have plenty of friends on a particular place, in this case, your comparing high school and college life? Aside from the different things that would be obvious, if you can do those things with people that you enjoy being with, that's what I would say as being better.

Hey, I would honestly prefer College life. Even though school life may somehow be a tad easier, I like College. I especially like the Colleges were you live at. It is good because you don't have your parents constantly telling you what to do! What a life! Happy MyLotting!

I'm from a college..What i can tell u is that, life in a college is definitely much better than high school.. lol =D There are not much restrictions on things, and there are lotsa of freedom too.. ON top of that, lessons are never boring because there are alot of hands on experience, rather than just textbooks and notes everyday.. hehe ^_^ BUt one thing, one needs to be very disciplined to study in college, for there's not much rules to abide to, thus making one dropping out or failing very easily.. haha

I like my school life only because in school life we enjoy the most and we have friends with pure friendship heart. In college life we are always competative and we struggle to become a topper and we can not have much time to enjoy.

I am in college for three years now. As far as I am concerned, college life is indeed very free, and you can do whatever you want,you have a lot of leisure time, you can spend your time do the thing you like,not restricted by others. But what is more, you have to control yourself well in college.

U are in a quite important time just like standing at the crossing.I think U should follow the voice of ur heart.Never care much about the others.Cus the road is under ur foot.But I've gotta to point out an opinion about the style of collage life.Instead of do whatever u wanna do,it's quite busy and even a mess if u cann't manage ur life.Many of my classmates almost have done nothing in the four years with an end of blaming themselves the day they left collage. Hope u have a bright collage life and come on ! Don't say sorry to yourself in the end be the master of yourself!

The two each have excellence. Perhaps after entering the university, you will think university life more splendid.

there is a big difference in schoole and college life according to me. In schoole life we do every thing that we want and parents may not support for some illegel activities. Bu in college life we do what ever we like and then there is no interference of parents and other persons. But there are certain responsibilies of this life. If they are to be completed then its ok.

WHOA. You're sixteen and you're still in high school? Well, I finished high school a month after I turned 16. Just sharing. :)) I'm in my sophomore year in college right now, and I can say that college isn't a piece of cake. I study in a Catholic University and the standards are far, far higher than most colleges around here. It's more fun because you put in less hours in school, yeah--my past school's schedule was 7am-4pm, five days a week, and now I put in 32 hours a week--but the subjects are exponentially tougher than they have been before. It's also a good warmup for work because you get to meet a lot of new people and you're more in charge of yourself. Like--what do you do in between breaks or after classes? Would you hang out or would you study? Like that... It all depends on how you look at it. High school's a lot considerate when it comes to its students, whereas college is a lot less demanding about time. It's your choice.

I enjoyed both in colleges and school.There is more freedom being in college though, more opportunity to meet new people and do new things, and learn new thing.The atmosphere in college is entirely different from that of a school.There is no one to control us in our college.If we enjoy fully in college it will spoil our future.It is a important turning point in our life.If we do not concentrate in our studies,in future we have to suffer a lot.

I have already left the college 15 years back and all I cans say that both are equally good (at least from my present life, which is having all kinds of worries and in school/college you don't have any worry except study) and you should enjoy both as these are the golden days of your life and won't come back again.

You are telling that high school life because college life is still strange for you... I have enjoyed high school, and I remember too that on my last year in high school, I am very scared to stepping into college life. Because I don't want to be away from my friends... ... but when I started to be in college. Slowly, I saw the differences. The subjects are a lot different than high school, but the good part is, you are given options about your time. You choose your subjects and choose the best time plan you want for the semester (of course with the approval of the registrar) In college, you will not have a permanent set of classmates, unlike in high school. In college, I experiences one semester where I have different classmates in all my subjects. But this does not mean that you cannot have a permanent set of friends. College might take you away from your high school friends, but then, it can take you to meeting new friends that will stay with you longer than you imagine. In college, you will start to build your own identity, you will see how people behave and project themselves. And I guess, when I stepped into college, it taught me to see and improve my level of maturity about things. Just keep yourself open to change, be friendly, allow people to know and discover you. Everything will be fine. College life is something your should be excited about.

School life was better in a way that things are simple. College life requires more of you. For me, I like the simple times during school life. I was happy in my high school. I am okay with college life but not so much with the people around me. Enjoy school life! You might be excited for college though because of the impression that you can do whatever you want but you must always remember that everything you do has a consequence.

With college life you'll have more free time to do other stuff but also the work gets tougher and I guess you gotta learn to be flexible with your learning and such. For me it takes getting used to having a set timetable in high school to having more free time and self study. Study becomes independent learning and gotta have discipline to stick to what you're pursuing and how you manage your time.

Hi, I think both lives rock in their own way. But the only difference is you should not be always under books but enjoy with your friends. Most of the people know that studying in college is not so important and regard college life as rocking. But in school life, if your parents give you enough freedom, and you study just enough to keep them happy with an A Grade and enjoy with your friends the rest of the time, it rocks. Regards, AJ-Rox
