The only way to overcome shyness is to prepare and become brave.
Prepare yourself for the encounter by having some conversation ready and then go for it. Another approach is honesty... just walk up to him and tell him you find him attractive but that you feel so shy around him you can't express it through simple conversation.
None of the above is easy to do, but who said life is easy :)
Your college should have a counseling service. I would also recommend that you take advantage of it.
