Alright, so... there are still things I haven't experienced in
university... believe it or not.

First, how does one become "Big man/woman on campus"? And does it have
any benefits? Do you have the max the influence bar or something?

Second, I've never had one of my sims join the secret society. Is it
true that they only wear their blazers on community lots? And that you
have to be friends with what, 5-6 of them?

First - have them reach the top influence level

Second - I've seen them wearing them at residential lots - the one
member i moved into a lot had an option to "change into" the blazer, if
i remember correctly. Can't help you with the number of friends, though.

I don't know. My sims have been big on campus, but I only noticed it
when browsing through their memories.

Yes, you'll recognise them on community lots. But you don't have to
befriend so many of them. Two or three is enough.

So, lots of friends, basically? Any idea how many?

15 - IIRC. Good points from doing it, though.

OOF... in just 5-600 game hours? Dunno if I can do that LOL

Wow... each semester is like 72 game hours, and there are 8 semesters,
2 each year for 4 years.... I didn't realize how long their educations
were truly taking! It's equivalent to 24 game days!

Yes, but looked at another way, it adds roughly a third to their life spans.
That's pretty good for sims that you like playing. The new "hang out"
option under talk is a very fast way of making friends. I've had one sim
make four best friends in just a little over 2 game hours using that
function. That makes 15 pretty doable, especially for a social sim with a
good personality anyway.

You get to count any previous friends too. I actually got one person to be a
big man on campus (the only one who ever wanted to as I don't usually play
popularity Sims)

Hmm... if you turn aging off in University, does the clock stop
ticking?

I've never gotten that want... I guess you must already have so and so
many friends, probably.

The only sims I had who got that want were popularity (or social) sims who
already had 10 friends. Don't know if that means anything though.

No. I think there are third party mods to stop the University clock, but
aging off doesn't do it.
