What do you call homework in college?
Homework in college is called problem sets. From my experience in engineering, there’s not a whole lot of busy work, but the assigned problems are harder than those in high school. Often they’re not collected.
Is college or high school more stressful?
Probably the biggest difference between high school and college is the amount of time spent on each. In high school, a student spends over 30 hours/week at school. College is less stressful, just on that basis. Another plus to college is that the student sets his/her own workload and class schedule.

Don’t kid yourself: C is a bad grade, and D is even worse. Most students in college are getting A’s and B’s (at many schools the average grade-point average is between B and B+).

It really depends on how you are, but for me three classes in one day would definetly be too much. However, if it’s a choice between a three hour class on a Saturday or a three hour class on a day when you have two other classes- do the three hour class on a Saturday.

Is 7 college classes too much?
So, yes, you can take 7 courses a semester, but I’d suggest against it, particularly if you plan to do extracurricular activities or work or have much of a life socially and the like. If necessary, I’d actually say doing 8 followed by 6 would be better.
Should I take 4 or 5 college classes?
If your working a full time job, don’t take more than 4. Since you need to balance your work/school schedule. Now, if your not working a full time job, I would recommend taking at least 6 classes each semester. It is better to take at least 5, per semester than just 4.
