They are ALL good but the best one is the school that accepts you for admission. Think first cost of instate vs out of state (big cost different like double), travel costs (driving vs airplane), tuition costs, dorm costs. Once your in remember the first 2 years is the same for all engineering...chemistry, calculus, physics. The goal is to survive since engineering comes only in last 2 years. Also what is your civil goal..structural, hydraulics, soils, environmental, general?? Plan based on your present grades and SAT scores and financial capability.
