You should say that you’re still in college on your resume only if you’re still in college. If you are still in college, you need to place heavy emphasis on all of the skills and experiences you’ve gained through your college experience. For example, you can include student jobs, volunteer experience, summer internships, part-time jobs, or any extra work you’ve taken on for family or teachers. You also can include participation in fraternities, sports, or other club experiences. These experiences can help show off skills like leadership, organizational abilities, collaboration, communication skills, and teamwork.
When you’re still in college, you can include on your resume the anticipated graduation date and the degree you will earn. Remember that just because you’re in college doesn’t mean you don’t have a lot to offer employers. If you can show how your internship boss rewarded you with added duties or you were given an achievement award for your volunteer efforts that set a new fundraising record, then any employer will be interested (whether you’re still in college or not). Don’t be afraid to brag a bit and show potential employers what you have to offer – they’ll likely respond favorably to your confidence.

You should say that you are still in college on your resume. The way to do this is in the education section. Most jobseekers will want to include the graduate date alongside the school they attended, but instead of a date, you can simply write "In Progress." Additionally, although the education would normally go last on a resume, it is acceptable to put it closer to the top because that will be your primary selling point.
You should absolutely mention any jobs you had previously, and this includes volunteer work. With this information, you should focus on transferrable skills you earned at one job that would be applicable to this new job you want.
