Game Summary

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! 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. Sometimes Sims just need to party though. 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. 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. Each group offers unique advantages, from earning dream jobs like video game designer to opening up an extra trait. Your University Life experiences will serve you well beyond college. Those with a degree will earn promotions more quickly and have a better-paying entry-level job out of school. The Sims 3 University Life offers everything you'd expect on a real college campus.

The Sims 3 University Life Review

It never ceases to amaze me that despite being nearly four years old, EA can continue to push out expansions for The Sims 3 that still manage to offer a fresh gameplay experience. University Life may not be the most innovative expansion, but when you're on the ninth expansion it tends to get that way. Anyone who has played The Sims 2 will immediately recognize the concept of University Life: attend college to further expand your Sims' future opportunities. It's definitely not original, though it does have plenty to offer fans of the series. First off, it's important to note that University Life is more than just a clone of The Sims 2 University. It still offers the same great features – dorm life, studying, scholarships, mascots, and bonfires – but it... Read Review

The Sims 3 University Life Cheats

Make sure that you have at least one family in the Family Bin in your neiborhood. When you are in the Neiborhood View, pick one of the families in the Family Bin and highlight the house that you want to have instant cash. Merge the households like normal. When you go into the house that you merged, you will be §20,000 richer. If you want, you can move the new resident or residents out like normal. You can repeat this as much as you like to be as rich as you want!

In order for this trick to work, you'll either have to have a computer that has no problem loading the TS2U lots, or patience. Either one will work. ;)

First of all, create a large household - eight, if the loading times won't be too bad. This is to insure that you have a family with the maximum amount of starting money possible. Next, move them into whichever dorm you want to have a lot of objects/wallpapers that don't come with the dorm. Go into buy mode and buy whatever you wish with that household's spending money. Now move them out. If you happen to enter the lot after you've moved them out, you'll notice that the objects and/or aspiration rewards they have purchased do NOT go with them (the objects/rewards are still there). You can do this as many times as you want to get as many free objects/changes in the dorms as you want! Have fun!

The cheat command floatProp tvVolume X will change the volume of the TV in The Sims 2 University.

The default value for X is 0.5. Lowering this to 0.0 mutes the TV. Subsequently, raising it to 1.0 raises the volume.

When you go to the Create-A-Sim menu there is a room with a mirror and window, for designing your sim. In the left hand corner (beside the mirror) there is a mysterious potrait. This is Will Wright as a sim!

Whenever, you use your portable gaming system, after finishing playing it, a relationship point gain will appear over your head. After playing with the game many times, your Sim will even develop a crush on it. The strange part is though, no new Sims are added to your friends list.

Since those NPC's that they bring home are teens, you'll never be able to have them move in with you, but if you go to the Neighborhood screen and go to where the Sim bin is, you'll see an option that says 'Send Sims to college' under that menu is all of the teen Sim NPC's. Send them to college and play them there until they Graduate or once at college just have them drop out to send them back to the Neighborhood and in the Sim bin where you can have them move into a lot and play them there.

This works best in a dorm where there are a lot of students.Wait until your sim gets the "do assignment" want.Wait for a NPC to start doing theirs,and when they are nearly finished,issue a social command to the NPC.He/she will leave the work on the on it and finish it,but you get the points even tough it isn't your work!
