Hi Rhapsody! Civil engineers impact your life every single day! Civil engineers design the roads your drive on to get to school or shopping, they also design the site plans for those same schools and shopping centers. They make sure you have clean water in your house and that when you flush the toilet your waste is disposed of properly. Civil engineers make sure that the foundations of buildings and bridges hold the building up.
If you want to learn more about civil engineering I recommend the American Society of Civil Engineering website: http://www.asceville.org/.
