I am a male freshman in college and I have multiple groups of friends and plenty of people who I have met that I can talk to. Even with all of these people around me who I can hang out around, I still feel lonely. Anybody else feel this way?
I am sure, without a doubt, that lots of other freshman in college feel lonely, even though they seem to have plenty of friends like you do. It may have more to do with the fact that you are still adjusting to being away from and learning to live away from your family. When you were in high school, you hung out with your friends, but always ended up at home with your family. What you may be feeling is that something is missing, and your parents and siblings may be feeling it too. You will learn to live your own life with your own social group, but it takes time.
