What should I be looking for in buying a bike?

I live in San Jose, California, and am looking to buy a bike. I'm not interested in "serious" cycling, or anything--I just need something to help with transportation to and from college (most of which will still be on bus).
The problem is, I know nothing about bikes--what sort of bike to get, what sort of features to look for. I'm utterly clueless, so any bit of advice I'd be thankful for.
