First off, congrats on looking for internships during your freshman year!
You can absolutely write in your college in the education section. Anyone currently in college, who has not yet graduated with a degree, is in the same situation you are. The only difference will be your academic level (i.e., sophomore, junior, etc.). Employers understand this status and expect you to indicate your college on the application. Information such as when you plan to graduate, your current academic level, etc, are important information for employers. If they are not requested as part of the application, they will most likely be requested during a phone screen or interview. Be prepared to accurately explain your college status, and all the best in your intern search!
