High school student should be grateful that all of their textbooks are free, because once you get to college, your books are going to cost an arm and a leg. Literally. Forget eating. Those last $300 are going to pay for that new sociology textbook you'll never open.
Falling asleep in high school made you one of the coolest students in class. Falling asleep in college is a complete waste of time and money. If you're not going to pay attention, you might as well stay in bed. No one is forcing you to go to class.
Most high school students never step foot inside their school's library. College students, on the other hand, will eat, sleep, study and hook up in the library. It will basically become an extension of your dorm.
As a high school student, you know all of your classmates' names and you probably frequently all hang out together. That's all going to change in college. You're lucky if you even know one person in a massive lecture hall.
Remember when it was that easy...and awkward? First you worry about your parents catching you in the act, and then you worry about your college roommate. Actually, no one cares about their roommate seeing anything. It's college!
13. Nerds, Dweebs, And Losers Don't Exist In College
If you thought teachers gave you a lot of homework in high school, you're definitely in for a surprise when you get to college. Prepare to spend long afternoons and longer nights reading textbooks and writing complex term papers you barely understand.
That's a serious question, asked seriously by serious students...on several SERIOUS occasions. School is an amazing experience, whether you're paying tons of money for it or not. So don't take anything for granted, and make sure you're actually thinking about your future!
College may be harder and more expensive, but at least you get to pick exactly what you study. No more having to sit through boring classes that don't interest you at all. Forging your own path and picking your own classes; that's what college is all about.
Passing a college class without taking notes is close to impossible. Long gone are the days of sending notes and texting friends while your teacher goes on and on about the War of 1812. If you want good grades in college, you're going to have to pay attention.
