A dozen ways to differentiate

12. In school, you do homework. In college, you study.

11. In school, you wear your backpack on one shoulder; in college, on both.

10. In college, the professors can tell you the answer without looking at the teacher's guide.

09. In school, you're told what classes to take. In college, you get to choose; that is, as long as the classes don't conflict and you have the prerequisites and the classes aren't closed and you've paid your tuition.

08. In school, if you mess up you can usually sweet-talk your way out of it. In college, you're lucky to ever talk with the professor.

07. In school, when the teacher said, "Good morning," you mumbled back. In college, when the professor says, "Good morning," you write it down.

06. In college, weekends start on Thursday.

05. In college, it's much more difficult to figure out the course schedule of the man/woman you have a crush on, in order to figure out where he/she will be walking around campus in order to "just happen to bump into him/her."

04. In college, there's no one to tell you not to eat pizza three meals a day.

03. College women are legal.

02. In school, you can't go out to lunch because it's not allowed. In college, you can't go out to lunch because you can't afford it.

01. In college, you can blow off studying by writing lists like this.
