University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA, for all it's shortcomings, has a fantastic CS faculty - you are using gcc on HP-UX for your compiling, and you're gonna like it. Also, they support Linux. No questions asked - they make you install symantec if you're on a windows box, and they look at you a little funny if you're on OSX, but if you're on linux, you log in with your student log on, and go. Have I mentioned their professors actually teach C and Python because Java is the devil?
