Rose-hulman or UWS for CS or CE undergraduate!!???!

I am debating between these two, now...

im an international student, and i am almost sure that i will apply for graduate school in US.

UWS i know it is a big school, and ranked 41 for national college. Of course i can meet more people and experience a real US college life in UWS, and i really like the location. But i know professors usually only teach big class in UWS and it is a little hard to find them after class if i have any questions need to talk to the professors face to face.

Rose-Hulman ranked top one for undergraduate engineering, im sure it is a great engineering school, and the most attracted thing to me is all the professors in Rose focus on teaching undergraduates, so it's really convenient to find them if i have questions. But i heard students in Rose do lots lots homework, so i wonder do they also have good social lives? I am a girl, there is only 20% students in Rose are girl... so like how is girls' lives in Rose? and the location of Rose-hulman is kinda like in the middle of no where...

so far i guess you guys maybe think that this girl probably just wanna have fun in college.. haha... well.. to be honest, i think engineering students do not have much time to have fun no matter where they are.. :P

another concern is to apply graduate school..
i know the location of a university is pretty important because the companies most likely would be happy to hire students around that area, if im planning to go to work right after my undergraduate i would choose UWS for sure, but since now im planning to apply graduate school, is the location still important??
i really dont know much about how these two schools doing on students going to graduates school..
so could you guys tell me any information about this if you know anything, please?!! :)

and.. please please give me some ideas that which school i should choose, please!!!!!
