The jump from secondary school to college can be an incredibly daunting one. For most of your time in school teachers will have been trying to instil respect into you; trying to maintain some kind of boundary with their students and telling you how difficult university will be and the kind of work that will be involved.
While some of this is true, in college, professors tend to be much more up front about everything and not trying to put on some facade. If they're hungover, they will let ya know. If they haven't prepared enough and want to end the class early, they will let you know. The hive mind of Twitter has been ploughing some of its creative juices into highlighting some of the differences between the approach of teachers in secondary school and that of college professors.
