    There are plenty of good universities that offer astronomy degrees, but first think about what you want to do with it. There's not a lot you can do with just a BA in astronomy - you could teach high school science, or maybe work at a museum or observatory (that's not nearly as much fun as it sounds like it would be). People working as astronomers have a PhD in astronomy or physics, and if you want to get a PhD in astronomy, you really need to major in physics. So I'll list the top grad schools in astronomy, but any of them also offer good physics programs, and that's really what you should be looking for now if you want to do astronomy later.

    Harvard, Princeton, Cornell, Columbia, Berkeley, CalTech, U Washington, U Arizona, U Hawaii, UT Austin, UCLA, UC Santa Cruz, Ohio State, U Virginia, UMass Amherst.
