ok, so i honestly don't know what i'm doing with drop down menus. i somehow just can't figure out how to do it right.
but just from messing around i got pretty close to what i want. only issue is the sub menu drops down in a fixed place on the far left of the menu rather then directly under its respective tab

please help me!
for the html, the website it www.ucchicago.org
here is the css...

#nav{
	width: 100%;
	display: inline-block;
	text-align: right;
	float: right;
	  margin: 0;
	padding: 0;
 
}
 
#nav ul {
position: absolute;
left: 22%;
top: 28%;
}
	#nav ul ul{
	display: none;
	}
 
 
 
 
		#nav ul li{
			display: inline-block;
			height: 62px;
		}
			#nav ul li a{
				padding: 15px;
				background: orange;
				color: white;
				border: solid;
			}
 
			#nav ul li a:hover{
				text-decoration: none;
				background-color: #ffb424;
				box-shadow: 0px 4px 5px #666;
			}
 
				#nav ul li ul {
					display: none;
					position: fixed;
					padding: 0px;
					margin-left: auto;
					margin-right: auto;
 
 
				}
 
				#nav ul li ul li a {
				padding: 10px;
				display: inline-block;
				background: #688A08;
				color: white;
				}
 
				#nav ul li:hover ul {	
					display: inline-block;          
				}
				#nav ul li:hover li {
					display: inline-block;             
				}
