Have you considered Management Information Systems, if your institution offers it? It approaches Comp Sci from a business angle instead of the science/engineering angle (databases, some programming, less math). If you want to get away from computers, see if you can switch into a General Engineering major. My school also had an Industrial Tech major which also touched on marketing and other non-engineering topics.

My roommate of long ago turned an MIS degree into an IT career, and my current boss did the same.

The #1 thing I wish someone would have told me before I started college is that it isn't so important what you study... your course of study will likely not define the entire rest of your life. I spent 4 years studying metallurgy, worked in computer labs on the side, and have ended up in IT.

I've considered volunteering as an academic advisor here just to tell students the above.
