Question on Characters

I have an idea for a book that I'd like to try and write, that I have ideas for the plot and setting and things like that, but I'm having a little trouble with characters. I've been thinking about this for a while, I'm stuck, and thought I'd see what other peoples' opinions are on the subject.

The story would involve a university, which there is only one of on Earth. In the story, I'd only be focusing on about four or five of the students and I can decided on nationalities for them. I live in the US so I'm more comfortable writing about characters who have a past there, but at the same time, it seems unrealistic to have all of them being from the US. On the other hand, I feel like it just seems like I'm trying too hard to get characters of different nationalities if I make each of them from a different country.

I've probably just been thinking about this too hard, but if anyone has any opinions, I'd love to hear them.
