About This Content

Create and control Sims by customizing everything from their appearances and personalities to their homes. Then send them off to university where they will enjoy new opportunities, like social connections and career growth. From class activities to major-specific objects, your Sim will find new ways to learn! And university isn’t just about hitting the books. Join a protest, flirt at a bonfire party—there’s a lot to explore outside of lectures at the student union. With new locations like the bowling alley and SimBurger to visit, and new activities like juice pong and spray painting murals to enjoy, your Sims are sure to have the time of their lives!

KEY FEATURES:

  • Major Excitement: Each major comes with its own special Sim enhancement. Play with an anatomically-correct skeleton as part of the Science and Medicine major, or broadcast a radio show with the Communications major.
  • Be the Big Sim On Campus: Joining a prominent social clique—Jock, Nerd, or Rebel—can lead to unique job specializations: Sports Agent, Video Game Designer, and Art Appraiser. But your Sim will have to work hard to rise to the top.
  • Master Procrastination: The surrounding town has a wealth of options for exploration and entertainment. Down java at Roasted Toasted Beans or argue superheroes at Keith’s Komics. Anything to avoid studying.

    Make your Sim succeed and earn their degree with the highest honor, while you fail your courses and drop out of college drowning in debt because you spent all of your study time playing this game. 10/10 would play again. XD

    *Dies to it*
    *Goes into main menu without saving and loads game*
    *Buys soda instead of slamming machine*
    Worth the 20 bucks.

    Very, very fun but to be honest sometimes it does get a little boring, mostly just classes, studying, and all that kind of stuff, but that is what the game is all about :) I would definately recommend this, at first I thought it would be super boring but it turned out really fun :)

    The game in itself is fun. New content. As this is my very first expansion pack in Sims 3. New two skills. New reputation added from university life. (New actions to obtain rep in a certain group) House parties are insane depending on the group you join up with. New shops in the University world. I did enjoy my time but read further. Before you do, I still will play the game but I am going to start a legacy family (google this). Just, remember to always save seperate files on big events during the game :).

    As you download expansions you may face some conflict. I faced the conflict of my very own sim not being apart of her family anymore by a small glitch that I don't know I received. She couldn't even interact with others BUT once she came back to the household after her semester ended she was able to but no family connection but the relationships she had with the sim were restored besides the family connection. YOU MUST NOT QUIT MIDWAY THROUGH UNIVERSITY. You could face a glitch in where you may have an F even if you graduate. You'd have to download a mod.

    Great DLC! A week is one term which you can use to study, go to class, party (which you will get plenty of invites to), sleep, or go hard at school with studying and going to class :0. Whichever you choose will ultimately decide your grade for your end term. Simple as that well built in my opinion hours of fun! Just getting back into sims and very glad I did!
