Resume Help

I just want some general advice, to see if anything is wrong with my resume.
I plan to apply for some summer internships during this winter break.
Hopefully, an internship with a video game company or some place big, think Google or Microsoft.
It's a stretch, but I can dream, right? :)

Anyhow, my resume, for your consideration.

Thanks in advance!

    No suggestions at all?
    I'm sure something could be made better, right?
    Or is it satisfactory enough?

    It is much too narrow. You should have your category titles on top of the information, not to the left of it. Just moving the titles, putting the bullet points more to the left, and the year more to the right, will make it look much better. Also, I would merge the very top lines (address, etc.) into like 2 lines, separating the pieces of information by bullet points.

    EDIT: Also, it doesn't seem very necessary to list the dates for all your activities. I would put those in a bulleted list maybe and lose the years.
