1. Classes are generally more enjoyable.
You're taking classes that you picked out. College is the time to find yourself and understand what in life interests you. This means that in many cases, you are taking classes that you like because you picked them this time. Whatever your concentration of study is, you are focusing on something that you enjoy. (If you aren't, I think that you should rethink your career choice.) However, when you like what you are learning about, it isn't just a long string of six or more boring classes in one day. Instead, it's an integration of different subjects that usually appeal to you. This isn't true in all cases of course, but if you are following a track that you really enjoy, you should start to really appreciate and enjoy most (or all!) of your classes!
In addition to all of that great stuff, colleges also offer plenty of classes that allow you to express yourself and have a great time. Wellness classes such as boxing or yoga can be offered and art classes such as painting and ceramics. These awesome classes actually count as credits that you need to graduate, which is super cool! (And ten times better than high school!)
2. Classes are spread out.
In traditional high school, you got used to going from class to class six to seven times per day. You had a short break for lunch in between, but it wasn't enough to give you a real break. You had to wake up at the most ungodly hours of the day in order to take public transportation or catch a ride to school. When you finally got there, you were forced to trudge from class to class. In college, you may have quite a few classes that are spread out or you may only have one class. This is the perfect time to take a much-needed nap to catch up on all the sleep you haven't gotten or take a study break or watch a movie on Netflix. Either way, the decreased amount of classes makes college... Easier.
3. Teachers don't ask you to pay attention and get off of your laptop.
There is nothing more annoying than being asked to put your phone away or tilt your laptop screen to ensure that you're paying attention. Yes, you should be paying attention. But, sometimes I just need to get something important done—no questions asked. In college, teachers don't really care if you're paying attention. This can actually create the extreme incentive to pay attention in order to pass exams and complete assignments. For example, have you ever been told to do something, and all you want to do is the complete opposite of what that person is telling you? Well, if teachers aren't telling you to pay attention in class, you realize how important it is to make sure you understand what is going on. In college, your grades and your success are up to you, so you will be forced to take your education into your own hands. With this, it's just ten times easier if you're not being pestered about paying attention, which can definitely lull you to sleep if you space out.
All in all, these three major reasons allow college to be a bit easier than high school. Although not everyone faces these same experiences, this is what I have gone through so far. I have been waiting to go to college for so long, so I am having fun here.
