  • • Achieve Academic Excellence. Learning is more fun than ever with new major-specific objects, from broadcasting your own radio show as a Communications student to boning 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 university, 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 at university.
  • • 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, develops their Street Art skill and cred with the Rebels by tagging and spray painting. Just don't get caught by the cops!
  • • Reap Benefits After University too! 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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly Full Marks For Sims University 9 Mar. 2013
    By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
    Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    Was interested to see how this would compare with the old Sims 2 University, and my verdict is that EA games has definitely made some improvements here. This expansion pack takes us beyond the "rabbit hole" which ate up much of the gameplay in the previous version, now we can actually follow our sims along to many of their classes, and use new objects (like the anatomy skeleton & the science research station)to improve their skills and grades. Your sim is also able to interact with objects like the whiteboard or the podium to give a presentation to other students.

    I also liked the addition of new social groups nerds, jocks & rebels. You can gain position, rankings and influence in these groups by participating in various activities and using new objects. You can purchase a kit to gain skill at "street art", buy a megaphone to start up your own protest movements, and use the new smartphone to improve your social networking skills.

    Adult and young adult sims can enroll for one or two terms at university via their phone or PC. They are then transported to the university town and can choose their residence (dorms, frat & sorority houses or private residences). A word of warning here, once you have made your choice you are stuck with it, there doesn't seem to be any "move" option. So if you are planning on building your own dorm, or just don't like your "roomies" - your sim won't be able to move, you'll just have to enroll again for another term when their course finishes. On a more positive note, if your sim has a career back home, they won't lose it while they're away at uni, in fact you may find that they gain promotion faster when they return (if their course was relevant to their career path).

    5.0 out of 5 stars A great expansion pack from the Sims 3! 21 Mar. 2013
    By Kathryn
    Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    This game is really, really great. It's a lot of fun and it is a great edition to the Sims 3 expansion packs. Although, being English, the American set up was a little confusing at first - trying to get to grips with sororities and jocks was a little bit of a learning curve, but I suppose you're at University to learn! It works really well with the Supernatural expansion pack, just in one dorm we had a vampire, a werewolf and a fairy, which was a lot of fun, although being hunted all the time wasn't so good.
    Some of my favourite bits of the game thus far are:
    * The new town. I think that having a whole new town to play with is so much fun, especially the new shops and the bowling alley.
    * All the new objects, clothes, etc. Having all these new things is really great, because they make the experience so much more fun, and you have loads of cool stuff to decorate your house with when your sims get home!
    * I really like the fact that you can actually see your sims in some of their lessons, which makes it much more interesting, so you don't have to spend the day on ultra-speed.
    * The street art skill is really great, especially as it makes the whole thing more realistic, and I love that the kit is called the "Banky street art kit" Had to refrain from calling it Banksy!
    * The new smart phone again, makes the whole thing really realistic.
    *The new traits! These are really,really cool.
    *The new skills objects are really good, such as the sketch book and the radio station. Both of these objects are really good for boosting the progress on the fine arts and communication degrees.
    *You can customize your whole dormintary! This is one of its best features, in my opinion.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Meh 27 Sept. 2013
    Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
    This wasn't nearly as good as The Sims 2 University.
    All's you have time to do with your Sim is to make them study and go to class, and even then they rarely get full stomachs. The classes are boring, although lectures are fun with how you can interact with your Sim while there in one.
    The whole social groups thing of Jocks, Nerds and Rebels was extremely stereeotypical, but fun, so oh well. The parties were wild, too.
    The new clothes, hair and furniture is fab, I love it. Uni is hard work, as there just isn't enough time for your sim to do what they want to do. I wish I had more time to explore what the Uni has to offer, but oh well.
    The Sims 2 Uni was far more enjoyable, but The Sims 3 Uni is definitely worth purchasing as an epansion if you're a seasoned Sims buyer.

    3.0 out of 5 stars So-so 11 Oct. 2013
    Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
    Felt too much like the Sims 2 university except it's just more difficult because they are out at uni so much (which is realistic but annoying when you want them to actually have a life too) and I do NOT like the social climbing aspect, it is remarkably irritating. However some good furniture and clothes and whatnot

    4.0 out of 5 stars Love this game! 10 Oct. 2013
    Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    This game has given me hours of fun and I've always enjoyed playing the sims. You can go to class with them but not as much as the game video lets on, most the classes are locked. If you like getting your sims to do well at school on the normal sims game then this is the one for you! You've gotta work really hard for them to get good grades. Overall, I love it but it does take forever to load.
