Back when I attended a “university model” high school, things were pretty strict. We only actually met three times per week, but those days off were not really days off. The homework was piled on, there were several papers a month to complete, and the academic standards were rigorous.
After going through all that, I expected college to be some next-level intensity. But I found something different.
Yes, college was a lot of work, especially when you’ve got a bunch of extracurriculars going, but the environment overall was FAR more chill. Which is the point that all these hilarious tweets are here to prove.
11. Let’s get political
“Here’s why every President has been a monster.”
High school teachers won’t tell you their political views but college professors will drag the entire US government without a second thought

10. Strict & scary
They know how unfair the whole system is.
Why did high school teachers always make college professors sound so strict & scary when in reality they’re like, “What’s up, you can call me Andy, I illegally downloaded the text book if you need it & I also have a gambling problem.” Lmfaooo

And it’s gonna get weird.
High school: "we're only being this strict to prepare you for college"

5. One of these things is not like the others
One of these things just doesn’t belong.
HS teachers: college is NOT a joke

“which doesn’t belong?”

I need the context for this so badly.
My High school Teacher: “You are all in for a rude awakening in college. Professors don’t mess around, its all business there.”

2. Fish sticks
I’m sorry for your loss.

1. High toleration
Give me the sweeeeets.
Middle school: "They won't tolerate this in high school."
HS: "This won't work in college."
College professor: "y'all want some milkduds?"

If you’re headed to college, just know that while you WILL have to work hard, it’s gonna be a lot more fun.
