The Sims 3 University Life does exactly what the title leads you to expect and its not all about attending lectures and learning. Not every student related activity which you can think of will be there but there will certainly be some you have not thought of.

You must enroll for a course on the subject you want to study, though these are somewhat limited in number, and then look around for somewhere to live be it on or off campus, alone or shared. The only drawback is that once chosen these things cannot be changed unless your Sim decides to go for a different course or start over again.

Of course you have the usual campus activities of study and lectures but that is really only part of the university experience which takes up only a part of the day, and usually only week days at that, but even here there are built in activities such as giving lectures and demonstrations to your fellow students.

There are various social and activity clubs to become a part of and these may or may not have anything to do with the subjects you are enrolled to study. No matter what the average student can always find the time and place, if not the money, to party and various party themes are catered for in the game. There are also off campus activities in the town such as bowling alleys and bars. Street art seems to a very popular pastime with game players and is certainly a fun and creative activity but not so popular with the law.

The game splits students into three main types or categories to suit your chosen character. There are the nerds, the rebels and the jocks each with their own ethos hierarchy which you can work your way up by gaining credibility within the group. In doing this you also gain bonuses within the game allowing your Sim to gain a few relevant extras.

Then again where would many protests groups be without large numbers of students to call upon to take part in demonstrations. Sports also play a large part in the life of the more physically able students and some get there purely on their sporting abilities and for them education is only of secondary importance.

Apart from all the fun and games, studying and gaining a good degree helps you Sim to progress along their chosen career path which may hopefully be integrated into the overall ambitions of you Sim.

Don't worry if it all falls through and you flunk the exams or get thrown out, the job you were employed in before going up to university will still be waiting on your return home if you need it.

This expansion pack adds much to make the life of your Sim more interesting and opens up new career paths and experiences.
