Social anxiety/shyness problems?

Long story short so I don't drown readers with my misery:
Junior in college with few friends. Everyday I get home from class, I'm sad because I was surrounded by people the entirety of the day, but I never struck up a conversation. Been like that everyday for the past 2 weeks. I'm longing for friendship and I'm longing for love. I do put myself out in the situations, but never does the courage come to me to act on it. I guess the question is: How can I get out of my shell around strangers. My best friends say I am super fun to be around and shouldn't have any problem if I was myself. It's just that, that me hides my personality from those I don't know well.
