As far as I know, this is the way it works: It says somewhere on the visa how long you are allowed to stay in the US. (Like, 9 months for example.) I assume as a student you have a J-1 visa.
The valid date ( June 2008 - May 2011) is the range in which you are allowed to travel TO the United States. So as long as you arrive in the US anytime before May 2011 it is still valid. It doesn't mean you can stay until May 2011. As long as you are within the valid time period you are allowed to travel.

You can enter the US 30 prior to the actual date on your I20.
