Colleges and schools have an important role to play in our life. Our life from childhood to adulthood can be divided into some parts in which the schools and colleges have a very special place to mention.
We spend most of our time in schools and colleges. The evident difference between these two can be seen prominently once you enter college.
So here are a few differences, I have noticed between schools and colleges:
1. Schools are all about discipline. From teachers to rules, students have to obey them.
Colleges are different in terms of discipline. Yes colleges too have its own discipline code but a student has his or her choice of obeying it.
2. The time. Schools have a time schedule of its own. It starts in its fixed time and ends in another fixed time.
In colleges, the time differs. It depends upon the classes you have. It has no fixed time of its own.
3. The friends: In schools, it is easy to make friends because you meet them on a daily basis. So establishing that connection is often more easy.
After school life it is a little hard to make friends since two people may not have classes at the same time.
4. The study pressure: Schools maintain the study pressure upon the students.
But once you pass out from schools, this picture slightly changes as the study pressure is less here. Your study depends upon you, in colleges.
5. The mental change: In schools, of course the hesitation of doing something is very much evident. One thinks a thousand times before doing anything.
In colleges the taste of freedom often abolishes the hesitation. One feels liberated; but this liberation can also lead to destruction if not used properly.
So these were a few major differences that I have noticed. But one must remember that wherever it is one must retain his or her aim and not let go of it.
