What goes in the Name and Address section?

You put your name and contact information at the top of your resume. You should include your home or cell phone numbers or both, and your student address. The postal address information is still suggested even though it is rarely used anymore.

If you are a US Citizen or Permanent Resident and you have a foreign-sounding name, I suggest you put your status in parentheses along with your contact information (ex. (US Citizen) or (Permanent Resident)). This may prevent a recruiter from assuming you will need sponsorship to work in this country.

Here is an example of the Name and Address section.
