I Asked 10 College Students What They Love Most About College

Most people, at least me, seemed to think high school was the hardest and most boring experience in their life. College has that excitement of making a bunch of friends from everywhere across the world, choosing your classes to take on your own time, and generally just having a lot more freedom.

However, with that freedom and fun comes a lot of responsibility. College is a fun time, but can be extremely stressful and challenging for each individual in different ways.

College is all about balancing the work and the fun. I asked 10 college students what they love most about college.

1. “Being away from my parents. I love the freedom. I can drink all night, party until I black out, just do whatever. Of course, I miss my parents a lot but sometimes it’s nice to not have to follow a curfew and rules.”

2. “I love meeting so many more people who are way less drama than my high school friends. If I don’t like my current friends, I can just make more because college is super big. People just approach random people all the time and it helps keep you super social.”

3. “Exploring a new side of me. I can totally be a different person because I’m so far away from home. I love exploring my style and different kinds of looks.”

4. “Parties. What more can I say?”

5. “I love how you can create your schedule by yourself. You can take classes at whatever times are most convenient for you. It’s not an 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. situation. You don’t even have to go to some classes where the teacher posts everything online. It’s so much nicer than high school.”

6. “The opportunities. There are so many clubs and great people where you can get as involved as possible. But you really have to make sure you manage your time well and organize your other activities and classes to do well.”

7. “The nightlife. I can message a group of friends at 11 p.m. asking to hang out or just knock on their doors and we’ll just go out and get wasted or just chill.”

8. “How close everyone is. All my friends live within a two-minute walking distance of me. We can stay up all night talking or watching movies, having girls’ nights, and just having a really fun time without anyone telling us what to do.”

9. “I love how most professors are so chill and try to be our friends. I remember going to office hours for one of my professors and we just had a really entertaining, long talk about our lives and even gossiped a bit. That’s something I would never imagine from my high school teachers. And I love how so many of them end class early or just cancel class on random days.”

10. “I love Greek life. Joining a frat was the best decision I made. So many more friends and connections and the parties are great. Definitely helping my college experience.”

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
