Change In College
This ultimately makes you more independent as it is up to you to get good grades and go to class. However, this did not affect me as much because I usually get good grades in my classes and I do not miss that much school. Another way that college has made me more responsible is how the teachers in college are different from the teachers in high school. In high school, the teachers are always there reminding you about homework assignments or upcoming tests. Also, if you do not turn in your homework or show up for your tests, they will be chasing after you, asking when you plan on taking your test or turning in your homework. In college, however, this is quite different. Teachers tell you once, maybe twice, about assignments or upcoming exams. And if you do not turn in your homework or show up for your tests, that is it. There is usually no turning in assignments late or making up tests. This has made me more responsible as I have to do my homework on time and make sure I prepare for my exams because there is no skipping out on a day and just doing it later. A last way that college has made me more responsible is that classes are every other day and there is no school on Fridays.
