In The Classroom

High School Classes Versus College Classes

While most high school classrooms are pretty much the same, college classrooms come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There are labs, recital halls, clinics, studios, small classrooms and large lecture halls.


Why so many types of classes? College classrooms are designed with you in mind. If you want to study business, communication, or education, your classes may look "traditional"—with desks, a whiteboard, a computer, and a projector. If you're studying in the computer science or other fields, your classroom may be a lab full of computers. If you want to become a scientist you will spend lots of time in a laboratory. If you want to go into a health care career, your classroom is likely to resemble a hospital clinic. If you want to study art, design, or music, your classrooms will be in studios. Some of your classes may even be held in the great outdoors.

Another difference is that in high school you move between classes when the bell rings. If you're late, you are in trouble! But in college, there are no bells. If you're late, you'll be lost and professors won't stop to catch you up.

A final difference — there's usually no assigned seating in college. You can sit where you like, and often choose with whom you'll work on group projects. Just be aware that you're accountable for these choices—make sure to do what's best for you and your education.
