If you have a college student ID that doesn't say it's expired (maybe from a past stint at school or something?), then the Citi Forward for students is great, as is the Discover IT for students. When I applied for student cards with them, though, both banks asked for proof of my student status. If you're don't have any way to prove that, you might want to wait, or choose another card.
Capital One (as bad of a reputation as they have) has some really fair cards that are easy to get for someone just starting out, and they even have 1% cashback (which is better than you'll find with other entry-level cards or with secured cards). They were a useful way for me to springboard my credit.
Also, I'll second everyone else who says go into your local bank, if you bank locally (not online), since they often have special bonuses for customers and can sometimes give you special recommendation if you've been a longstanding customer or if you have high savings/investment balances.
