    The University of Utah would be a good safety that fits your objectives for a safe urban/suburban campus. It has a good CS program and an excellent honors college with interesting course options.

    Ohio State University - https://cse.osu.edu/current-students/undergraduate/majors
    If you are more interested in business, you should actually apply for direct admission to their Fisher College of Business https://fisher.osu.edu/undergraduate because it can be very difficult to transfer into later. If you are sure you want engineering then you need to apply to their College of Engineering (international students need to be directly admitted - only domestic students can transfer into the College of Engineering). In addition to Honors/Scholars programs there is a small, competitive program (36 students/year) that combines engineering and business "students receive a bachelor of science in business administration or engineering major, a minor in the opposite field, and an “Honors in Integrated Business and Engineering” diploma distinction" https://u.osu.edu/ibeprogram/program/about/

    Safety - admission to Ohio State
    Target - admission to College of Engineering or Fisher
    Reach - acceptance to the IBE program

    Hi @BuckeyeMWDSG @Twoin18 @cptofthehouse @Greymeer @Hippobirdy @Hamurtle
    Thank you for your responses. I will definitely be looking for these as safeties.
    However, I am more inclined to looking for safeties on the East Coast (Mostly NE) and West Coast and maybe great lakes area too. Also, I'm not really concerned about scholarships. I know that most public universities are focused on catering to students in state or at least in-country (unless they have historically admitted lots of international students). If you could recommend any PRIVATE Safeties for CS that would be helpful. At the same time I am looking for safeties for economics or business

    For a safety, take a look at Loyola University Maryland (in Baltimore). Has CS and business programs.
