You sound like a charmer. What do you want to study? Do you want to stay close to home? What size school would you like? Is financial aid an issue? You should start getting lots of suggestions if you provide that additional info.

How about Whitman College in Washington? They are big in debate and have good support services, if you decide you want them. They have a neat and not-too-expensive debate camp this summer. Might be a way to check them out. Do you want a Catholic education? Loyola College in Maryland is a nice school. Also Xavier University in Cincinnati. Good luck!

Also check out Kenyon College in Ohio and Knox in Illinois.
