The Sims team has released an official blog for The Sims 4 Discover University
Enroll your Sims in higher education with The Sims™ 4 Discover University Expansion Pack* launching on November 15, 2019, on PC and Mac and December 17, 2019, on Xbox One and PlayStation®4. Whether your Sims are thinking of heading to the historical University of Britechester or modern Foxbury Institute they’re in for some amazing collegiate experiences.
There’s so much for a new student to do! From choosing on- or off-campus housing to exploring their new alma mater via bicycle, your Sims are going to be pretty busy starting this exciting chapter in their lives. What else is on the syllabus? Just keep reading!
Settling In: Once your Sim is enrolled in good ole U of B or Foxbury Institute, it’s time to choose a dorm (if they’re staying on-campus), maybe spend some time in the student commons, or set up a study session in the library. Have your Sim hop on a bike to really explore their university and all it has to offer! And don’t forget to make sure they show off their school pride with new university swag from a kiosk on campus!
Academics: When it comes right down to it, college is all about the classes and your Sims have a huge selection of them to choose from. Biology? Sure thing. Computer Science? You bet. Villainy? Weirdly enough, yeah! There are lectures to attend, term papers to work on, and presentations to give. And, of course, attending classes (or blowing them off) will affect their final grades. Remember, the more they learn, the better they’ll be in their future careers, so no slacking if your Sims want to succeed.
Extra-Curricular Activities: You know what they say about all work and no play, right? When your Sims aren’t burning the midnight oil studying for a big exam, they might want to try out some juice pong, hang out with their roommates, or maybe join school organizations like robotics, debate, or art. The campus rumor mill also claims there’s a mysterious secret society on the lookout for new members, but we wouldn’t know anything about that (wink wink).
Self Expression: College is all about discovering who you’re meant to be, and your Sims can really experiment with their personal style. It all starts with dorm room decor that reflects their personality. From posters to mini-fridges (for all-important midnight snacking), you can make their room perfect for studying or just hanging out. And when it comes to personal style, send them to class dressed to impress or sporting comfy sweats – it’s all up to you!
