i found it hard to make new friends after i graduated undergrad and worked for a super small non-profit where it was just me and 2 others. i understand the isolating feeling you're talking about.
almeekers idea's are great. some other ideas are google/research clubs you can join. there is an appalachian trail hiking club near me and I hear that the people are super friendly---and it's easy to talk lots when you are hiking or kayaking or something. maybe find some sort of a club or sport to get involved in? Intramural volleyball or something? Is there a community rec center?
