Hello, all
If I say "on the way back I met a friend and fellow students", I'm not sure how many people I have met? one or two? I'm not familiar with the word fellow.
In fact, I want to say "on the way back I met a friend, who is a student as me."
Thank you.

    "on the way back I met a friend and fellow students"
    I'd understand that you meant a friend and that you also met multiple fellow students. So that's at least three persons.
    In fact, I want to say "on the way back I met a friend, who is a student as me."
    On the way back I met a friend and fellow student.
    On the way back I met a friend who's a fellow student.

    The above two both sound a little too formal for casual use however.
    On the way back I met a friend who's also a student. I prefer this.

    If he's a classmate, people would normally specify that. On the way back I met a friend who's also a classmate (of mine).
