It really depends. If you want to be a programmer, I recommend just trying to learn a lot on your own before going to college. Find a few good tutorials and start pacing your way through.

If you are wanting to take the modelling path, it will be a similar deal. Find a good 3D editor (Blender and Milkshape3D are great for beginners) and start messing around with it. Start trying to make models for your favorite games and importing them.

Ide suggest going to a real college and get a comp sci degree, not some college chain that promises you that you can make the next big game.

this may be slightly off topic, but what would be better, a comp science degree or a software engineering degree?

edit:ok that was an unclear question. I guess I meant: What would be more pertinant to game programming and programming in general?
