Image C May 31, 2016  Why Your College Friends Are Significantly Better Than Your High School Friends By Alysa J. Martin Summer vacation means being back home. At first you are so happy and excited but after a few weeks you really can’t stand being back in your parent’s house with  your mom checking up on you every 10 minutes… So, to escape your parents you go hang out with your hometown friends. More than  likely you made these friends in high school. If you are like me, you go to school  far from home. Far enough that not a single friend of mine is within a reasonable  range for hanging out. And, even if you do go to school in your hometown, your  friends you have made in college might not be, so you hang out with your high  school friends anyway. You have some fun catching up with your high school friends but it just isn’t the  same… Now don’t get me wrong, I love all my friends from high school. I really, really do.  In fact, one of my friends has been my friend since second grade. Obviously that  has to mean something! But I will never be as close with my high school friends as  I will be with my college friends, despite knowing each other for a shorter time.

Here are the reasons your college friends are significantly better than your high  school friends: In college you aren’t “forced” to hang out with anyone. Everyone had that one friend in high school that they weren’t actually friends with.  You only hung out with them because they always seemed to be with your best  friends everywhere you went. In college, you really don’t have that. Sure your  friends might be friends with people you don’t get along with, but it’s just different.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
