BackgroundAre you not sure what to do or where to go when your Sims finish school? It's a big world out there, and The Sims 3: University Life gives you a place to start. Once you've graduated high school, go on off to Sims University to get a degree in Technology, Science and Medicine, Fine Arts, Physical Education, Communications, or Business. Live in a dormitory, fraternity, sorority, or your own apartment and keep on track of your class and lecture schedule while you engage in all sorts of educational activities like lab work, projects, and studying. But don't forget about your social life. The Sims 3: University Life offers all new ways to party and socialize with your friends, whether they be Geeks, Jocks, or Rebels, and you can now engage in social networking, or blogging, if that's more your thing, with your new smartphone. College has never been so fun.
Game PlayJoining Sims Uni is easy, simply apply online or over the phone and select the Sims you want to take, your degree, and your credits. If you want to, you can take a college aptitude test to see whether or not your teen job experience, school performance, and skill levels might get you a scholarship in a specific degree. But otherwise, wait for the moving truck and you're off to the University campus, a new "neighborhood" to explore. First things first, choose where you want to live and how you want to live, and after that, it's up to you to keep on top of your schedule. You'll be going to a variety of different buildings depending on your degree, so make sure to keep on top of everything, and you'll always need time to study. But it's here at college that you'll meet some very interesting people. You can connect with them in many all new ways, through new interactions, new types of parties, your new smartphone, and much more. Everyone can now also make a reputation for themselves, these reputations being Geek, Jock, and Rebel by talking to certain people and performing certain actions. You can even be multiple. Overall, going to University doesn't guarantee you success in your adult life, but it can help a lot, and it's certainly fun, especially in The Sims 3: University!
FeaturesAmong some of the new features are the University neighborhood, the ability to go to University, new interactions and things to do, new social classifications, smartphones, social networking, blogging, PlantSims, and new parties.
