Why banning access to credit for students is a bad idea

Dear Experian,

I currently have no credit history and graduated from college last year. I have applied for two credit cards four months apart and got denied for both due to insufficient credit references and revolving credit accounts. I really want to establish my credit for the future. What can I do to get approved the next time? Also, is there anything else I can do to start building my credit?

Dear Experian,
