Depending on your field, the details may change a bit, so best advice is to contact a professional in you field and see what the industry leans towards.

For Science, Engineering, Technology, etc. I highly suggest highlighting relevant school projects, internships, co-ops, etc. If you can replace classes taken with a project or internship, do that. Generally, start with your education (degrees, awards, etc) then move to your projects, internships, and co-ops and close with other activities/non-related work, interests, etc.

Keep it short. Unless you have a lot of experience, it should generally fit on 1 page. Make sure it is clean and professional looking and try the 30 second test. Give your resume to 3 different people and let them look at it for 30 seconds only. Then, ask them to describe you as a candidate based on that 30 second review. If you don't like what you hear, you should look at tweaking it.

Finally, if possible you should have industry professionals review it as well.

Good luck!

Focus on skills and education, not work experience. Download a template online to create a truly professional looking résumé. Have 3 professionals, not students, proofread it. Even if your not completely confident with a skill, list it. You will learn along the way. Write a dynamite thank you letter and cover letter, then use them as a template and tailor to each employer.
