10 Reasons Why College Is Better Than High School

Does anyone seriously really want to go back to high school?

10 Reasons Why College Is Better Than High School

Some people say that high school will be the best years of our life, I really disagree. Here are 10 reasons why college is better than high school:

1. If your are dorming, your parents are breathing less down your neck

Moms just a phone call away instead of two steps

2. You get to control what classes you take

I can take art instead of Spanish? YES

I can take a yoga class for credit? YES

(Besides some of the major requirements)

3. You get to control what time your classes are

Morning person --> Morning Classes

Night Person --> Night Classes

Want more breaks in between spread them out.

Want a day off?

I don't see issues here.

4. Making better friends

Sorry, high school friends, I hated you all. Backstabbing and drama is still in college but its a little bit less.

5. You can start fresh

Unless you are close to your hometown, you pretty much have no idea where, what or who is around you. It's fun to try new things.

6. Professors are less into your business

Unless you really look like you've been hit by a car, Your professors usually don't become too much annoyance in questioning your personal life.

7. Sex is normal

Hickie there, noises here, dirty words, kisses.

No one bats an eye, less dirty looks by your peers.


Couldn't nap in high school if i tried. Now that I'm in college, I nap everywhere.


I have not been in a school where laptops were allowed.

Pretty sure the professors can't even tell you aren't taking notes half of the time.

10. More outdoor time

My campus has a lot of grassy space, so I always take advantage of laying outside with a sheet on the ground. In high school, getting fresh air wasn't until the end of the day.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.
