Default What was it like switching from drumming in High school to college?

Just a question that popped into my head while I was watching some video of the drummers at the college I want to go to. The college isn't nationally known for music or anything, but the arts culture is pretty lively there. I was thinking that it would be strange hopping from percussion section leader in high school to having to wait in line behind better or more experienced musicians in college. Do freshmen typically get to play at colleges with atleast decent music programs? I've really been making an effort throughout high school to become good at playing almost every percussion instrument (until recently, mallet instruments). Yesterday, our marching band became the best band with 30 or less people in the state. It would just be weird having to step down a peg when I go to college in 2 years.
