Paying off the collections will increase your credit score. Having student loans is not an awful thing as long as they are in good standing. If you decide to pay off the collections, try to negotiate with them esp a pay for delete. Get everythign in writing before you pay anything. 

Since you are a college student, have you thought about putting together a rainy day fund... thsi takes priority over almost anything else in my books,
