what computer major should i pursue

So i start college this summer due to a program and i am not sure what major i want. I was really bent on doing cs as i was enrolled in apcs in high school. Right now i have a C in that class(still in highschool in case u were confused). The course is hard we have 18 chapters and we cover each chapter in a week. We have to try really hard on the lab and tests. Maybe the grade is low because i have 6 other classes including ap physics (A in that class) and in college i might have more time. In junior year i worked a little with hardware and enjoyed it. I also worked with html and c++ that year and had fun. This year with java in apcs my grade was A in first quarter, B in 2nd and now C. So what should i do how are cs and computer engineering different and if u wanna suggest me any other computer major i will take a look. I am going to uri.

    The projects you do in college ans what you do cs related outside of class beats gpa anyday as long gpa is not too bad(2.8-3.2)
