The Sims 2 video game from Electronic Arts is an awesome game that lets you raise a family of virtual people, complete with kids and jobs. But, that's not enough! Now EA is releasing an expansion for the awesome PC video game - The Sims 2 University. It drops in March 2005 but we have the scoop on livin' the virtual university life right here, check it out!
What's up With The Sims 2 University Expansion?
The deal is that you can take your Sims and, when they hit the "young adult" age, send them to university. They'll move to the campus, live with a bunch of other computer Sims, go to class, take exams, study, party and more. They can check out an entire campus, work part-time to earn extra money, join a fraternity or sorority - they can even join a secret society and do top secret experiments in the school labs!

The coolest thing about The Sims 2 University expansion is that, on campus, Sims get an Influence bar that shows how popular they are - if it's high enough, they can order other Sims around. There are also four new jobs your Sim can take if they get good grades in the right courses. You can also try to fulfill a Lifetime Want for your Sim, and if you pull it off, your Sim enters a lifelong Platinum mode and stops aging!
