Best Linux College?


I've been asked to help research for a good College/university in the midwest of the United States. The prospective student is very into Linux and has used it for a few years (Red Hat) and has been into computers almost all of his life (building comps, programming, etc...). For a major probably Computer Science or Computer Engineering. The student is looking for a college in the midwest (indiana, illinois, michigan, around there), GPA acceptance of around 3.2-3.4, and isn't very pricey for out of state tuition. From my research for helping out, I haven't found nearly any colleges that either offer Linux classes and all systems use Linux, or the entire campus is mostly Linux/UNIX. Does anyone know of any decent colleges for one interested in getting a computer field with Linux? In the midwest area of the US and doesn't have the most strict of acceptance.

My college doesn't have a degree program, but I took the five classes they had. Once I graduated, it took me about 4 month to get a nice job as a unix admin(among other jobs I perform). I went to IvyTech State Collge in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. Odds are that a decent sized school will have classes even if it doesn't have a specific program or degree for those classes.
