:) This happened to me last year, so I hope I help
OK. First, talk to your best-friend. If you feel shy about it, she's the one to talk to (unless she's the obnoxious 'oh, I don't care' type)
If she's 'batman' as you put it, then look around her. Some other friends of hers must feel the same way you do about her- you can't be the only one.
They mostly stand to the side, or huddle around, so you'll spot them.
If not, then look around your class. It's your first year, so there must be other new people feeling the same way about making friends. Since it's college, there's a wide variety. The insecure type people are either (not trying to be stereotypical, this is experience) flocking to popular people, in a corner, or in a/the library.
If you can't count on college, go out to town. Walk around, go to a park if there is one. Try meeting new people at clubs or activities.
Look, I'm insecure too. My best-friend sort-of 'gave-up' on me, so I know how it feels.
Just try your class and I bet you'll find new people.
I hope I helped!
