What would most employers want/expect in a CV aimed at a programming Job from a student? Mostly I'm at a loss at how to list what skills/languages/frameworks I have under my belt. I've Googled searched some examples and they seem to be more aimed at existing professionals not students.

For example I "know" C/C++/Objective-C/C#/Java/Python/Haskell/UnrealScript/WRAMP Assembly/HTML/CSS/Actionscript... (Theres more too :P) but am only comfortable with a few of them, whereas most CVs describe what level they are at with the language (Beginner/Professional/Production etc) I "know" some Agile Methods techniques and Design Patterns but I don't have a lot of experience using them... things like that.

Also do Employers care about Honour Societies, I got offered positions in some but haven't replied because its my impression that they're a waste of membership money.
