I'm creating a simple CSV file to import about 150 users into AD using CSVDE.  I'm having problems defining the field for "memberof".  All the users should be members of Domain Users and a group called Students.  Any examples of syntax would be great!

You don't need to add the users to Domain users - that's automatic

great....do you have the full syntax for the "memberOf" element?  I've used this
CN=07student,CN=Users,DC=CITYHIGH,DC=LAN
but it doesn't like it

You can't modify 'memberOf' directly, it's a back-link that is maintained by AD and is not user-editable. You need to connect to each group in turn and edit its 'member' attribute to add the DN of the user/group account that you want to add to the group in question.
