Just get a low limit credit card ($500-1k)and use it for little things and pay it off every month. That'll get your history going better than loans.
All of the major companies have cards for students and for those with little to no credit. The interest rates will be high, but that's why you just need to be responsible about paying that balance off monthly to avoid getting into a hole.
