There is a difference between school life and college life . School life is a life of control . It is a life of guardianship . School life is a life of strict discipline . A school student enjoys a limited amount of freedom . Some students live in hostels .
There is another difference between school life and college life . School hours are fixed . Students have to be at school for fixed hours every day . But at college the hours of attendance vary .
Students have to attend three or four classes every day . They have sufficient leisure hours also between the periods . On some days they return early from college . On other days they return late in the afternoon .
School life is happier than college life in many respects . A school student jumps, laughs and moves about freely . He may cry or shout . But a college student is always told that he is no longer a school student . So he must behave as a grown - up man .
The compulsory games , sports and drills in the school make a student physically strong . But every student does not enjoy these facilities at college . College teachers do not know most of their students . So , school life seems to be more pleasant than college life .
In a college library , a student has greater freedom in the choice of books . He gets different kinds of magazines and newspapers in the students common room . There are also very good arrangements for games and sports .
But school life is better than college life . A school boy is free from care . He lives a natural life . But a college student understands the world he lives in .
He has to manage many things for himself at college . A college is an unknown place for a school boy . He always has the sweet memory of his school life .
