Where are you based? On which airline and from which airport will you be flying?
If you aren’t airline committed, Amex, Chase, and Citi all have their own benefits for transferable concurrencies. For me, Amex is best, followed by Chase.
I am based out of the midwest and normally fly out of a small regional airport or ORD. United, Delta, and American all fly from the regional airport. I am not yet committed to any airline, but my preferred hotel brand is Marriott
Frequent Miler has a great post for you today:

The first article assumes a really solid understanding of manufactured spend, which is not the easiest concept to grasp and then undertake. While Greg’s article today is great, I think signing up for 16 credit cards during college is way overboard. If anything, keep yourself under Chase’s 5/24 rule while in college. Then, when you graduate and enter the workforce, you’re at least able to sign up for a lucrative card. Greg’s son won’t be able to sign up for a new Chase card, at minimum, for 2 years after he graduates. Which, hopefully is when you’re earning a decent paycheck, so you actually want a rewarding card.
