Default Education Advice

Hello! I am currently a High School Senior. I will be attending The University of Wisconsin, Madison next Fall. This is because my parents would not permit me to study Game Design at a Game Design school, such as DigiPen.
I was wondering if someone could give me some advice as to what courses I should take as an undergraduate. Specifically, I wish to become a game designer. Should I major in Computer Science? Should I minor in art, and if so any specific type? Any sort of unexpected courses that I should take? Thank you for your time!

Thank you very much. I was somewhat lost when it came to my education, but now it is much more clear the path I should take.
