THE SIMS™ 3 UNIVERSITY LIFE EXPANSION PACK


PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Are your Sims ready for the time of their lives? Heading off to college in The Sims 3 University Life* opens up new opportunities, from social connections to 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!

Pre-order The Sims 3 University Life Limited Edition** and get the party started! The Limited Edition features The Party Pack Bundle and includes the Partaeus Maximus statue. This statue is an object that allows your Sims to throw the best parties ever – from a raging toga party to a mysterious masquerade event to an elegant formal affair. Party guests will even get a mood boost and an attire adjustment to reflect your desired party theme!


KEY FEATURES
Achieve Academic Excellence. Learning is more fun than ever with new major-specific objects. Your Sims can broadcast their own radio show as a Communications student or bone up on anatomy using the skeleton as a Science and Medicine major. Your Sims can also learn through class activities, lectures at the student union, and joining in social activities.
Get Ready to Party! Text books and study groups are a big part of college, but sometimes Sims just need to party! From hosting bonfires by the lake to doing juice keg stands at a dorm party, there are lots of ways to have a great time and let loose.
Make Connections and Network. Grow your social networking skill through texting, blogging and streaming video. This builds your affiliation with the three social groups on campus – the Nerds, the Rebels and the Jocks.

Building your cred with these groups offers unique advantages, from earning dream jobs to a coveted extra trait.
Actions Matter. Just like in real life, your Sims' decisions are deeply interconnected. For example, a Fine Arts student benefits from the Avant Garde trait, and develops their Street Art skill and cred with the Rebels by tagging and spray painting. Just don't let your Sims get caught by the cops!
Reap Benefits After University Too! Help your Sims reach the top job in your career path more easily with faster promotions and a higher entry-level job for university grads. If your Sim becomes a legend with their social group, they may even land a dream job as an art appraiser, sports agent, or video game developer!
Explore the Campus and Town. From striking out at the bowling alley to flirting with the barista at the Roasted Toasted Beans to browsing comic books at Keith's Komics, there's a whole new town and campus full of places to explore.

*Requires The Sims 3 for PC/Mac to play.
**While supplies last.

    I see a bakery counter, and it does say flirt with the barrista, so we may see that? Plus, it shows the guy serving coffee, rather than "cleaning the counter" unlike the picture we saw in Showtime. :XD: *squeals* (Note: I love going to the coffee shop plenty of times).

    No clue if all of the school buildings will be rabbitholes or not, but the classroom is "50/50" whether to be staged or legit. Hopefully it's an actual classroom as depicted. The most I can think of is that the buildings are "shells" and the classrooms are pretty much like the apartments/showtime stages in Late Night/Showtime, which doesn't seem "too" bad. >.<

    Table Tennis/Ping Pong Table, with an addition of juice pong? YES!

    Vending Machines? YES

    Bowling Alley? YES

    Addition to the Art Skill? YES

    Juice Keg? YES

    Comic Book Store? My inner nerd says YES YES YES

    Awesome. But there seems to be some mistake - they haven't shown the wide variety of curly hair for men they will surely finally include?!

    Seriously though, those clothes look like a vast improvement.

    They said time at home will be the same, so no one will come home to big changes.

    And advertising for a roommate will carry over into your worlds, too!

    the first part is a little sad... then nobody get older as your away... but guess it makes sense.... would really have loved that I could have university in the home world... but maybe some one figure out a way to make one any way....

    I like the roommate thing... not much use as a legacy player... but cool non the less especially when starting over

    Yes, I'm quite sad about the subhood thing. Sure, it makes sense but I was really hoping some of my genius teen sims could take uni classes to get ahead. Maybe my single mom could take a night class here or there while raising her children, without leaving home.

    Yes, Argus confirmed that you have to travel to go to Uni and anyone from YA to elder can go. Time will "slow down a lot" in the homeworld so you come home and everyone is still there. Meaning that it will likely function similar to a WA world.

    that is what they say.... but maybe we can have what is like a smaller uni at home... if some of the things spawn an npc... I hope so... then I will want a comunity uni... even if it dosn't give you the degree....
