how can you tell if a sort of shy guy is into you?

i'm pretty shy myself, so it's a bit of a conundrum.
so... there's this guy in my class at university who i definitely have a crush on. we never really talked in class or anything, but after the last couple of classes, he's caught up with me on the way out of school. one time he asked me a question about my dress and said that he liked it, and we ended up talking a little bit about music. then the next class, he asked me about my spring break plans and whether i was going to see any music in town, and we talked about that a little. he asked if i was coming to this little meeting for our class after school, and i decided (more upon him asking about it than anything) that i'd go.
after our class meeting thing, another girl suggested that a group of us go out for drinks. i hesitated a bit, and he said he had some homework to do, but after i said something to the girl about going for a drink, he decided to come along. (i don't know if this was related to me going or not, but it sort of seemed like it, maybe... there were about five of us.)
he ordered two drinks at the bar (we just sort of ended up standing next to each other, so i wouldn't assume this was planned), and when i got out some money to pay, he said, "you can owe me one..." (i bought him a reciprocal drink later.) chilled with the group a while, and ended up talking amongst ourselves for a bit, but i couldn't really tell whether he was into me or not.
ended up that when everyone decided to leave, our cars were in the same direction (he asked me where i was parked), and he walked me back to my parking garage. he gave me a hug and told me he hoped i had a nice spring break and that maybe we'd see each other at the festival later or something... but didn't ask for my number or anything.
sorry this post is so awkward and little-kid-like! hah. i'd just like your thoughts! :)
...just being friendly?
