My dad has a successful server hosting company.
What would be a good major that correlates well to his business for college? All I can think of is computer engineering but I'm too stupid for that.
>I'm too stupid
You don't need to be smart and actually it can get you decent money if you're careful and lucky with your career plan. #1 job is getting out of being frontline and into management.
Don't try and be an engineer if you want something easy - often you'll be asked to fix stuff made by braindead morons that goes beyond the call of what you were taught would happen in ideal circumstances, it's just a pain.
I want to utilize my dad's success and take advantage of my fortunate position. would that be helpful for this?
I want a medium difficult major, nothing too hard, but unfortunately there is so little info on SysAdmin and Network Engineering, and I really dont want to get into comp sci. Fuck.
Get a business degree, and read cert material on the side.

Accounting leading to a MBA.
If he's making money he'll need someone to count it for him.
Also, MBAs get paid multiples of what a coder gets.
Depends on what you want to do. If you want to manage and take over the company well business is the answer. I would get a business degree anyways and read CCNA material on the side. It never hurts to know more.
You are in a very privilaged position Anon. Tbh I would ask your dad to let you work even as an intern and learn from real life and gain experience. Do your study on the side. The intershits is full of knowledge you just need to know what you'll need.
I've started my career as an intern in highschool mainly because i knew Perl and MySQL. After my internship, right before going to college my employer offered me a full time job. It's been 5 years now, I'm currently working as a .Net Developer (company requirement) and 3rd Line Service Team Leader. Started CS this year only to see what missed me in college. As for now i can tell you - not much really.
If you need to study pick something that will teach you how to successfully run a company. This knowledge will be far more relative to you in the future.
