When young whipper-snappers head off to college, a lot of them are in for a real shock.

Mommy and Daddy aren’t around anymore to help them get things done and it’s now up to them to get their s**t done and be responsible members of society.

No more pampering, no more free rides, and no more home-cooked meals.

And, boy oh boy, do they learn in a hurry that it’s a lot different from high school.

People took to Twitter to share the big differences between high school and college. Let’s take a look.

1. It’s when everything gets REAL.

Race to the finish line!

2. It’s one or the other.

Either totally mysterious or you know their life story.

3. I’d call her a hero.

She did the right thing.

4. This might get weird…

Two worlds are gonna collide!

5. Not as motivated as you used to be, huh?

What happened to you?

6. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Doing what you have to do.

7. Why did I do that again?

It’s a real thing.

8. Don’t do it kids!

You’ll want to get up at 10AM, at the EARLIEST.

9. He needed a crying break.

Only five minutes, though?

10. This isn’t fair!

It used to be so easy…

11. It’s very obvious.

They can’t even do their own laundry…

12. Don’t tell her yet…

Let her dream!

What are some of the things that you learned pretty quickly in college?
