Remember - Mechanical engineers build weapons, civil engineers build targets.

Good luck with your new site and welcome to DC.

1) An Environmental civil engineer is the same as a normal civil engineer, with a bit more specialization for environmental integration. This means I have to take a few more courses than my friends in normal civ eng, butat the end I'll have a better understanding of natural systems, their relationships with human systems, and how to build with as little negative (and possibly some positive) impact on the natural site.
2) No, I'm definitely a Vancouver Native. I've lived in Coquitlam (suburb) my entire life. This is my beautiful city. Where are you that you have to miss it? Also, remember that those mechanical engineers would be building their weapons in the cold and wet if we weren't here to build them a place to work in. And for the coke thing, that really isn't true. There is just as much of other brands on campus as there is coke. Besides, the government pays for something like 75% of our fees (although I'd like to know where all that money goes, since 120 students paying $500 per course is a LOT more than needed to pay the prof for that one course).
3) Underwater hockey is definitely a sport. It is actually a very intense sport. We wear snorkels, a mask, flippers, and a protective glove with a short wooden stick to play with a brass or lead puck 8 - 12 ft below the surface. You should check it out. There must be a group in your town. Afterall, there have been world championships every year since the 80's.
I think thats it. I'd be glad to answer any more inquiries. It's nice to see so much interaction here.
