Is going to college out-of-state a good place to make new friendships?

At this point in my life, I've lost most of my closest relationships, and for the first time I feel completely alone. I have my best friend, and other close friends, but it's just not the same.

I have the choice to go out of state for college in the fall to California (Azusa Pacific University - which is a really small, close-knit school), OR to stay here and go to my local state university (which is mostly a commuter school). Would going out of state for college be a good way for me to start over and make new friends a build new relationships?

Or should I stay here and pick up the pieces of whatever social life I have left and try to put it back together? I hate the idea of leaving without fixing things. I don't want to come home every break to nobody!

I really don't know what to do. Any advice? Can you still make new best friends even if you're an out of state student?

    I lost most of my close relationships too and I decided to go out of state. I lived in Texas but moved to Indiana for college and it was the best decision of my life. I made so many close friends that I know I'll have it actually is a bonus being from some place that most people at the school aren't. People will find you interesting and you will stand out in a good way. Go for it!

    I'd say go to Azusa, just because I visited it once and I think it looks like a good school. I'd say you should make your college choices based on the college, not the people going there.
