What kind of bike should a college student invest in?

I'm a college student with no car & by the end of this summer I'll have more than enough for a bike. I'll just use the bike for riding around campus, and around town to the bank (I have a job right by campus), the grocery store, ecetera. It'll feel nice to not have to walk 30 minutes just to get to bank & I won't feel super confounded to the campus. But I have no idea what kind of bike to get; a road bike? My dad has a mountain bike that I drove once on the road to run an errand and it just felt really difficult for me to handle, like it was going too slow for me so I don't think a mountain bike would be a good idea? Or should I get a hybrid? I'm just lost when it comes to all this.

Get a comfort or hybrid bike and add fenders and a rack. Planet bike makes great lite weight fenders.
