I want to be either an Environmental Engineer or a Civil Engineer in California and I might start my own Industry.

Context: I've been interested in the field of Science and Math since I was in Elementary school, and I've learned that Engineering is a combination of both. I especially need to improve my Math skills in order to accomplish this goal (such ad taking Calculus and Statistics for better Mathematics). Also I think Civil or Environmental Engineering would be a great experience for me to improve the Environment and strengthen our communities at the same time.
College: I want to apply to mostly CSU Campuses such as CSU Long Beach, Fullerton, North-ridge, Channel Islands, Los Angeles, and Cal Poly Pomona (that last one was to get closer to my big sister) and graduate with the Bachelor of Science Degree. These colleges are a good fit to me and I think they're like one of the best campuses in California based on their academic success. I know that these college wouldn't provide whatever majors I want (For example, Channel Islands didn't really had Engineering majors), but at least I could live a social life during my college years and also have fun. However, I still have lots of courses to handle once I go to college.
Other Education: N/A
Activities: I use to be part of a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) during my Sophomore and Junior years of high school; during that time I can learn and explore a little more about my passion of the Science and Math topics for my career after college.
Job Experience: I'm working on finding internships and/or jobs for myself for the Engineering field.
Soft Skills: I'm able to look for shortcuts from a computer, I can read and remember smaller information about something, I can think of logical ways about a specific topic, I'm a really hard worker in all my life because I make sure my grades are passing and that I graduate high school and college as a strong and independent young woman.
Hard Skills: Learning the Spanish Language (I'm still an amateur), memory development (I'm born with Autism Spectrum Disorder), working on courses (I'm not a very fast worker during my high school years).
Other: N/A #computer-science #computer-software

Why is college so expensive now compared to when my parents attended college?

Because I'm frustrated that college will put me in a ton of debt. #college #student-loans #debt...

How often do college students get to go back home?

I know there are breaks during semesters, but I've also heard there's "dead time" in between those breaks as well. I am going 4 hours away from my home and I have people that I want to see more often than on holidays. Do I just have to wait until breaks or will there be a time that I can go...

Could I have two completely different full-time jobs?

I want to major in the medical field and also agriculture. I want to attain jobs relating to those majors, but there are policies limiting more than one full-time job. #pre-med #doctorate-degree...

If I am unsure of which job field I'm going into, how do I know whether I should go to college? Should I take a gap year?

I am very much considering taking a gap year, however some people around me seem to discourage it. I know I do not want to go into college if I go into a field where it is unnecessary, such as filming, which I am considering. Any suggestions? #college #career #career-choice #careers #gap-year...

What is the average student loan amount for Oklahoma?

I will be working through college and hopefully getting scholarships. I hear of my friends saying, "I'm just going to do student loans." How long does it take to pay those off normally? And what's an average monthly payment? #college...

In college, is it best to live on campus or at home?

I've heard that dorm environments can be very distracting. I've also heard that living on campus helps get you more involved in campus culture and events. I have the opportunity to live at home, so I was wondering if the on campus experience is worth the extra money....

What is the best way to get to know your professor and make sure he/she knows you if you are in a large class?

I have always had close relationships with my teachers throughout high school and I want to keep that up. I like to ask a lot of questions to make sure I am understanding everything clearly. #college #professor #masters...

Is it more important to go to a prestigious college/uni or to go to another college/uni that is more unknown, but cheaper?

What are the pros and cons of going to a prestigious college/uni (ie Ivy League)? Is it worth it? Will I be able to have the same quality of education elsewhere? #college #education #university #colleges...

How beneficial will AP Physics C be for freshmen year college physics?

I do not plan on attempting to place out of Physics 100 in college (every person I've encountered on visits has dissuaded me for some very good reasons). Though I am curious as to how helpful AP physics will be/how much of the same material will be covered. Can't seem to tell from course...
