I guess I’ve become much more independent. My school days were relatively unchallenging in that regard because it was a small school so it was easy to find everything. Plus I saw the same people every day and I lived right across the road from it. Now I’m in university and it’s obviously a much bigger place. I need to depend on myself a whole lot more in order to get around and do all that I need to do.

I think I’ve become a lot more focused and disciplined in my life too. In school it was daily homework and school work. There wasn’t much room for procrastination and distraction. Whereas in university/college, the work can take weeks at a time and there could be multiple assignments to be done. So I’ve probably become much more careful in planning my time and activities because of that.

I subscribed for college, after high school.

I agree with @splashyaxis. I’ve definitely learned a lot about self-discipline and keeping a steady work flow. In addition to this i’ve learned how to deal with the stress of college, whereas with high school I didn’t ever feel much stress. Although it’s stressful, I notice I enjoy what i’m learning a lot more than I did in high school.

When I first made the transition it felt the same except I was paying for the classes.

@citygirl9050, I calmed the fuck down. I went to a little, private, christian school and I drank and partied a lot to combat how much the days sucked. Then I went to college, and I enjoy my classes and am wayyyy less stressed, and I stopped being as wild and drinking so much.

How have I changed from high school to college? I am considerably more mature. I have different views on almost everything and my priorities are very different. I feel like I had no idea who I was in high school, and since I starting college I have figured a lot of that out. But a lot has changed besides college since high school. That was four years ago for me, so maybe all of this would have occurred without college, but I definitely think it helped with some of it.

Not sure if I speak for everyone but I really became aware of the importance of perspective. I went from a bubble of a high school environment to a 50,000+ person university, and it wasn’t an easy transition. I guess I just didn’t realize how different the realities of other people can be. Once I realized how much culture there is to be discovered, then it was just a snowball effect onto learning about myself and developing a renewed philosophy on life. The people I have met and become closest to in college were not at all the people I imagined were “my type” back in high school, though I still keep some of the typist people around.

I realized the importance of learning who you are before attempting to learn about other people.
