'The Sims 3: University Life' Announced, Dated - Screens

The Sims 3: University Life opens up new opportunities, from social connections to career growth. From class activities to major-specific objects, your Sim finds new ways to learn. Join a protest or flirt at a bonfire party. There are new locations and new activities, so your Sims can have the time of their lives.

Key Features:

  • Achieve Academic Excellence. Learning is more fun with major-specific objects. Your Sims can broadcast a radio show as a Communications student or learn anatomy using the skeleton as a Science and Medicine major. Your Sims can also learn through class activities, lectures and social activities.
  • Get Ready to Party! Text books and study groups are part of college, but sometimes Sims need to party. From hosting bonfires to doing juice keg stands at a party, there are lots of ways to let loose and have fun.
  • Make Connections and Network. Grow your social networking skill through texting, blogging and streaming video to build your affiliation with the three social groups – the Nerds, the Rebels and the Jocks. Building your cred offers unique advantages, from dream jobs to an extra trait.
  • Actions Matter. Just like in real life, your Sims' decisions are interconnected. For example, a Fine Arts student benefits from the Avant Garde trait and develops Street Art skill and cred with the Rebels by tagging and spray painting. Don't let your Sims get caught by the cops, though.
  • Reap Benefits After University. Help your Sims reach a top job with faster promotions and a higher entry-level job. 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 hanging out at the bowling alley to flirting with the barista to browsing comic books, there's a host of new places to explore.
