welcome to the forum BambiBrute!
as agp stated, stay away from secured cards and store cards. as everyone else has stated, stick with your local bank and apply for a college card from them if they have one available. if not apply for one of their lower tier cards. capital one is fairly easy to get a credit card with as well but in my own opinion, i feel its better to stay away from capital one.
i know discover's college credit card is fairly easy to obtain. a friend of mine who has near to no income, who is also in school, has no credit history was accepted 3 months ago. but ymmv whenever it comes to credit cards
whats your income btw? we could probably turn you to a specific card if we knew what your income and your background. any loans?
i started off with a college credit card from wells fargo back in 2011 with a 12k income. they started me at $800 credit limit. was my first ever credit card at the age of 21
