I was thinking its a good way to build credit.

You have plenty of time for building credit later. Right now, pay in cash for everything that you get. You are just entering adulthood. The responsible thing to do is to begin a habit of living on what you earn, not managing debt for what you do not earn.

Even charging and paying off when the bill comes in is a bad idea in my eyes.

If you feel like you have to use plastic, get a debit card.
