If you make no reference to an honors level (even cum laude) people will assume you graduated with a GPA of 2.6 (or something less than 3.5). You may want to list the number if it was on the cusp of the next level up, assuming there was one, to make yourself stand out.
You first (or two) job is no place for false modesty. You are selling yourself based on your CV and if all you have done, relevant to the job you want, is your studies then don't hold back on exploiting this to its fullest.
As you gain experience what you did in college decreases in importance rapidly.
