You should be so very proud of yourself.
Apparently the graduate program at your current school thought that your undergrad degree was prestigious enough for you to be admitted into your current grad program.
Sometimes people can be very shallow and think themselves superior, very snobbish--I totally understand that you're trying to connect and make new friends---it will happen when you least expect it. Continue on your course of study, do your own thing, be
open and friendly and eventually you'll find like-minded people.
Wishing you the best,
