That's so exciting that you are pursuing college and asking about the college experience! In short, College CAN definitely be all that it's all cracked out to be if you seize the opportunities that college presents!
I definitely agree with Gessie in that College is totally what you make of it. I think one of the biggest changes you will experience on day 1 of your college experience is independence. Once in college, you have the independence to decide how involved you are with activities, clubs, lectures as well as what opportunities to you seek.
As a teacher, I always told my high school students that college is exactly what you make of it. My advice for you start doing on day 1 to get the most out of your college experience. You'll see that college gives you a great amount of freedom and independence that you may be experiencing for the first time in your life (especially in a school setting). Take this freedom and seek out all opportunities available to you! Go to office hours, talk to your professors, make a commitment to attend all of your classes and study sessions, seek out tutoring, form study groups with friends/in your dorms etc. etc.
It's so easy for students to not seek out different opportunities and stay in their comfort zone because there isn't anyone telling them that they have to. My advice for you, seek out as much as you can from your college/university and you will undoubtedly have a great experience.
Best of luck as you continue to explore college opportunities!
However you are paying to be there so there will be more personal responsibility. Even though there is less assigned homework, you should actually spend more time reading and studying.
