I'm not in college currently, but I will be in the spring, so I've done quite a bit of research on the subject. From what I've read, the Amex Zync is likely to be the easiest card to acquire.
Something like the Discover More Student or Citi Forward Student might be better cards, but they will likely require a longer credit history.
If you have absolutely no credit, you may have to get a secured card first. And if your parents have good credit, you should get added as an authorized user, since that will greatly help your credit.
