What is the best bank for a first time user to get a checking account?

I am 17 and I just graduated and I am looking for a bank to open a checking account. I heard susquehanna, F&M and Patriot federal credit union are the best. Whats your opinion? Also do I have to be 18 to use a debit or credit card? And is there anyway for me to build my credit?

    Building credit is like digging a hole. The deeper it is, the more there is to lose if you fall in. Try building your assets instead.

    New more strict guidlines in checking accounts now.
    You must be 18.
    Where do your parents bank at?
    Open a custodial account in your name at their bank.
    They will have to go with you.
    You will get a debit card with your name on it in the mail in about a week – with your pin a day or two later.

    At 17 YOU SHOULD have a checking account.
    This is a must – drop everything and get one today.

    If you use the same bank you do, they can transfer money right into your account if you get in a bind. Make sure the ATM machines are convenient to you.
    Important: Ask to opt-out of overdraft charges when you use your debit card.
