High School vs. College
There are many similarities between high School and college as well as differences. They are both places of education that help students learn more and help them achieve what they want in life and what they want to become, but they are different in many ways. High school is required and a free place of learning, while college is optional and expensive. In high school there are more rules follow, such as no food or drinks in class. Also teachers push their students to complete assignments. There are punishments, such as detention or ISS, if you don’t complete assignments or if you break the rules. In college the professors give you work and it’s up to the student to complete it or they fail. College professors are more lenient with minor things such as eating or drinking. In High School there are many rules and regulations to follow, such as dress code, no food or drinks allowed in class, leaving class or campus without a hall pass, and much more other rules. While in college there is no dress code, some professors allow food and drinks in class, and students do not need a hall pass to leave class. Even though they are different, some rules and regulations are the same for high school and college. Such as the use or possession of alcohol or other drugs are not allowed, there is no kind of assault; endangerment; or physical harm to another student.
Another difference is that college is more expensive because tuition, living expenses, and books. Tuition can range from a low amount of money to a great amount of money, it also can depend on semester or yearly. Semester tuition ranges from $4000 to $5000 and for the yearly tuition it ranges from $8000 to $12000. Money for the tuition whether it is semester or yearly does NOT include the living expenses or the student’s books. For the housing payments, rent, or any other accommodations for living away from home could range from $400
