    Depends. High school is great. You have 0 responsibility and classes are a joke. College you actually have to take care of yourself and classes can suck...but some of the other things that can happen

    I would never relive my high school life... Would go back to college (undergrad) in a hot second!


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    College is great, you have 0 responsibility and classes are still a joke.

    Re: High School or College

    Both were great for me... both were totally different.

    I think the transition to college was easier in some ways becuase I had about a dozen good friends from HS come to ISU... In some ways though I didn't meet as many people or take "chances" socially at first though.

    Both were great. No one can tell you how to live your life and you shouldn't try to live it based on what we say. Surround yourself with good people and don't be afraid to step outside of the box.

    College by far.... No parents to worry about. You learn to make your own decisions... The parties... The Games... The bars...

    Oh... and the women.

    Cool Re: High School or College

    What high school did you go to that it was so easy? My high school was tough.

    I thought college was 100 times better than high school when it comes to the "fun" factor. Classes were a little tougher so you need to make yourself study.

    Most of the time my biggest worry in college was trying to make it to my 9:00 class after staying up all night playing NCAA football on Playstation with my roommates.

    College was the best 4 years of my life and I'd give just about anything to go back. Girls, freedom, girls, parties, girls, make tons of new friends from all over, and did i mention girls?
