Last night I pulled into the parking garage to my apartment on campus. (We're both in college). She was pulling in at the same time and we took the elevator together. We talked a bit and we said which room we both live in and said that either of us could stop by tonight. So an hour or so later, I go over to her place. It's her and like 4 other people just playing some drinking game. I join in the conversation and we get to know each other a bit. She asked about my roomies, my major, etc... then her and the other people were about to take off to a real party so she said I should take my phone out so she could give me her number. And she offered if I wanted to come along to the party but I declined for this time. When she gave me her number, she told me to text her... I did right then and told her I did (I just sent Hey its *my name*). But I'm not sure if she read it right then or not... either way, four hours later at like 3AM, I get a text from her saying "Hey it was really nice to meet you tonight!"
So what do you think: interested or friendly? Why would she have texted me later? I already had her number and when I sent the text we were right next to each other... I feel like she read the text right away and then texted me hours later.

This is very very early to judge 'clearly' on whether she was just being nice as a friend or if she was bordering more towards a romantic interest.
But she really must like you, that's for sure, for otherwise she wouldn't have asked for your company at her place (+1), or even better to the party. Asking you over to the party meant she has in fact enjoyed her time with you so far, that she was willing enough for more together time (+2)
Having gone to the party and still managing to text you as late as 3 am rather than anytime the next day to show you her gratitude further confirms she likes you as a person (+3).
Give it time and wait for more encounters. More than paying attention to what she says (not that you shouldn't), a sure bet to "decipher" her intention would be to be alert of positive body language she's sending your way. If you catch her staring at you or making frequent glances at you (both not during conversation), then they'd point directly to something more than mere friendship for sure. I'm saying this out of a clear experience I 'm having myself concerning "speaking with one's eyes alone". They do yell of loud and clear "interest".1
