Maybe you feel disconnected because you are going to a large university! I am currently attending a small private college and the school has a very close community. It is easy to start a friendship with someone else at my college and get close to them and feel more acquainted with them than at a big college or university when you don't see them as much. I personally find that at public schools that it's a lot harder to get along with the students there. That's why I like private schools much better. I enjoyed going to a quasi-private high-school for 2 years and I like going to my private college.

As others have stated, you're simply maturing faster than your peers. I partied really hard before most got started, and by the time I was 18 I was entirely through with the party scene, and wanted to do things which I felt had a purpose and meaning behind them. I separated from about 95% of my "friends" at this point, and slowly fell out of most of the remaining relationships. You're probably just emotionally and/or intellectually accelerated compared to your peers. Nothing wrong with that.
