New Producer Blog Post Explains Studying In University Life

The Sims 3 University Life associate producer Brittany Henry has posted a new blog entry on explaining studying in the expansion:

Mondays and Wednesdays are devoted to seminar-style classes. These classes are held in one of the academic rabbit-hole buildings on campus, and can vary from Introduction to Dodging Questions to Methods and Practice of Tragic Clowns. While in seminar classes, you can choose from a variety of tones to set behavior of your Sims; tones will affect the amount of academic benefit your Sim gains from a class.
