Hopefully in the near future, I will be able to unite my FAQs so that they compliment each other better instead of repeat themselves so much.That or I just might make the Action Guide it's own FAQ, one of the two. ^_^ ============================================================================= Introduction: 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 The Sims 2: University is the newest and first expansion pack added to The Sims 2, and offers a whole new perspective upon simulated life that reinforces the original game significantly, but enough of the one sentence review and onto the nitty gritty.
There are three goals of this FAQ, as although I originally wrote it to be a small guide on the new expansion; it has accumulated into quite the perpetual ball of text on its own.
The first goal is covering The Sims 2 University in detail with effective strategies that yield maximum payoff for minimal work (Like cheating, but less fun).
The second is revealing obscure facets of the game to widen your enjoyment, like how to have a sim do the sexy walk or how the pool skill system really works.

Honestly, when I went on to the Nightlife FAQ, I abandoned the though of ever updating this FAQ again, kinda' assuming that Nightlife was the current The Sims 2 frontier and eyes would be on there instead of here.
Well, now due to the most excellent response - proving me quite wrong, I decided to pick it up and run with it for one more revision!
Since this FAQ was written before The Sims 2: Nightlife was released, there is a great deal of information that did not get taken into account with the contributions that Nightlife would make, specifically the Pleasure Seeker aspiration, the new inventory system and the new Influence commands.
For detailed information regarding these, please consult my Nightlife FAQ which covers the details in conjunction with The Sims 2: University retroactively.
As a side note, this update is made simultaneously with my Nightlife FAQ, as I want to wipe my slate of old research and ideas clean before The Sims 2: Open for Business is released.
The FAQ has been upgraded all around, but specifically, the Graduation section has been expanded into Graduation & Honors and now covers what different degrees of honors a sim can graduate with along with the job boosting bonuses that come with them and a few unconfirmed bits were cleared up in such matters as Lifetime wants.
In regards to the popular Action Guide, please consult the Nightlife version if you have both expansion packs, as it has been significantly upgraded.
