College was a lot of fun, wasn’t it? Thousands of kids letting loose away from their parents and families, losing their minds…and occasionally going to class, too.
Oh, that’s right, you’re there to get an education, remember?
Here are some very funny tweets about the realities of going to college, as opposed to high school.
1. A bit of a difference.
(Teacher who barely got through school and managed to get a teaching degree): my name is Ms. Johnson and you will call me as such
(Professor who is a top individual in their field with multiple degrees, maybe a PHD): hey guys what's up my name's Matt

2. No middle ground.
half of college professors are like “you can know nothing about me except my name” and the other half are like “and that’s why my wife left me! anyway what’s up with y’all”

3. They’re lying to the kids!
Hs teachers: “you have to be professional in college, your professors aren’t going to put up with anything”
College professor: “do you guys mind if we keep the lights off for class today I’m hungover”
*one kid is eating mashed potatoes*

4. See what they did there?
high school teacher: i won’t tell you who i voted for
college professor: i can’t afford my girlfriend’s abortion under our new healthcare

5. Don’t make them read too much.
High school teachers: You are to write about the use of the color yellow in The Great Gatsby. If it's less than 10 pages I will CALL THE COPS.
College profs: Write about an entire religion. I don't even care which one but if you make me read more than 3 pages I will end my shit.

6. Oh, really?
high school teachers: “this stuff won’t fly in college, you need to be more professional”

8. Not the case at all.
teachers in high school: "extra credit doesn't exist in college and you will die"
actual college professors: "make a hand turkey and show me for bonus points"

9. See you later.
HS teachers: There's still a minute left of class, sit down!
College professors: There's 15 mins left, but I'm done teaching so bye.

10. It was determined that was a lie!
High School Teacher: “College is going to be way harder than high school”
College Professor: “Class is cancelled bc I don’t want to come”

11. No clue who your son is…
Imagine having parent teacher conferences in college
Mom: how’s my son doing?
Prof: I’ve never seen this man in my life

12. Mixed emotions.
Ditching school is only fun in high school, in college all I think about when I skip class is how much of a disappointment I am lol

13. Funny how that works out.

14. Wayyyyyy different.
8 a.m high school classes and 8 a.m college classes hit totally different 😭

15. I’m making all Cs!
Me in HS: Ya I’m involved in 13 clubs, I have a 4.0, and I’m on 5 sports teams.
Me in College: So good news, I’m passing

16. Getting a little more serious.
High school bathroom graffiti: brittneys a hoe!!
College bathroom graffiti: Our entire society was founded on racism and misogyny

17. Better get it together!
april in high school: happy, prom planning, minimal stress
april in college: crying, 57 assignments due, contemplating dropping out, crying

Well, those brought back some wonderful memories from my past.
How about you? Do you remember your college days?
Were you wild? Maybe a bookworm?
