Investment options for 18 year old?

I have no background in investing and I'm not American but I would like to know what are my investment options as a college student studying in the US. I have put a side $1000 but I have no idea how to start. I am interested in an investment with low or minimum risk and I did a bit of online research and found out that my best options are mutual funds and bonds?

Any advise or comments?
