College and high school
COMMON: both learning institutions
Both have students and teachers

College always costs money, even a public college.
Teachers are meaner and give you more work, dont care if you have other classes.
Teachers set high expectations and dont treat you like a child.
More control over your schedule, more control over what you study in college.

Students tend to take college more seriously than high schoolyoure paying for it, youre more
independent. Depend on counselors to tell you what classes to take. In college youre on your own.
Advisersyou have to seek them out, they wont come find you. In high schoollots of second and
third chances; in college, one chance.
In college, you care about your grades more than in high school.
When I was in high school, I often handed in projects and homework late. Teachers would give me up to
four chances to get my work in, and I still passed. Now that Im in college, I dont even get second
chances. If I hand something in late, I lose a tremendous amount of points or I fail. College and high
school are both learning institutions; they both have teachers and students, with goals that need to be
met. However, college and high school are different in many ways: college comes with more
responsibility. College students are more mature than high school students and are expected to
behave more like adults than high school students.
High school students are more naïve and childish than college students.
Students tend to take college more seriously than high schoolyoure paying for it, youre
more independent.
a.When youre paying for it, you care about your grades more
b.Your mentality becomes more serious
c.Dont want to pay for no reason
d.After college, the real worldcloser to the real world.You can get a better job if you do
well in college or get a college degree.
