Seated, left to right: Michael Bruce, Ramsay Bruce

Michael brought a TV back from campus. Alas, they have nowhere to put it. Whatever shall they do?

snapshot_1e9c043f_ff65c95d

Well, I guess they’ll just have to build a new TV room.

(Each resident of the house is contributing money each semester to the household funds, so that over time they can build the place up into something really awesome.)

Dimitri stopped by, missing his old digs.

snapshot_1e9c043f_bf65c786

Celeste, the other non-resident member of the Greek House, stopped by and bonded with Carme over Chinese food.

snapshot_1e9c043f_9f65c7b7

Mauro settled into the house and got to work on earning his needed skills.

snapshot_1e9c043f_3f65ca5a

Dimitri got a cell phone call from Romina. Didn’t know that was possible, but maybe it’s just because he used to live here.

snapshot_1e9c043f_ff65cb7d

Carme’s spent a lot of time playing guitar.

snapshot_1e9c043f_5f65d19e

Mauro decided to go into town, and found himself at Club C. He immediately recognized Armando as a fellow Popularity sim.

snapshot_1e9c043f_df65d450

Back home, it was time to invite the newly arrived college students over for a party.

snapshot_1e9c043f_5f65d48a

Anya was quite pleased to see Ramsay again.

snapshot_1e9c043f_bf65d4d1

Ramsay got reacquainted with Feofil as well, while Mauro hurried over to meet Anya after heartfarting her.

snapshot_1e9c043f_3f65d5d5

Then Anya sought Ramsay out again for some hot tub time.

snapshot_1e9c043f_9f65d659

Malvina and Dimitri quickly reconnected, proving it wasn’t over between them yet.

snapshot_1e9c043f_3f65d76f

The party was a Roof Raiser – not hard when just about everybody there was already friends.

snapshot_1e9c043f_bf66ee78

Venyamin is still sort of “with” Celeste, although they haven’t made any commitments.

snapshot_1e9c043f_5f66f14e

Photo booth pictures are fine for the dorm, but I decided the Greek house needed some proper portraits of the founding members.

snapshot_1e9c043f_5f66f5a9

Venyamin held another party, and Mauro decided to spend it hanging out with Anya.

snapshot_1e9c043f_9f66f5f5

Venyamin managed to catch the kitchen on fire while making munchies for the party. Alas.

snapshot_1e9c043f_ff66f687

Mauro invited Anya to pledge the Greek house, and she was thrilled to accept.

snapshot_1e9c043f_bf66f6aa

Most of the other party guests spent the time slap dancing, including the professor who crashed the party.

snapshot_1e9c043f_ff66f72e

Dimitri and Malvina had their own private party.

snapshot_1e9c043f_1f66f777

Feofil was also invited to pledge the Greek house.

snapshot_1e9c043f_3f66f851

He was then influenced to serve a meal, and made some delicious sparkly fish out of his inventory.

snapshot_1e9c043f_3f66f99f

After the party was over, Mauro invited Anya back for a date. He really, really liked her.

snapshot_1e9c043f_3f66fadb

She hung out with Carme, doing more slap dancing, while Mauro went to class.

snapshot_1e9c043f_1f66ff7c

A few portraits were done by the end of the rotation.

snapshot_1e9c043f_9f66ffeb

And the semester’s over for Cham Var Hoh, with perfect grades for all.

40 Almond Street

Left to right: Dimitri Hamilton, Marya Hamilton, Orlando Centowski, Romina Necci

snapshot_3e3fd4be_3f6856a8

The group just moved into this lovely little Maxis house, chosen because it’s slightly less stupid than the others.

(Because I’m cruel to my sims, I’m forcing all the Uni sims who want to live off campus into Maxis homes, which they will rebuild and make livable.)

snapshot_3e3fd4be_bf6856d2

Here’s the original interior, complete with just awful floors and wallpaper and a random half bath right in the middle of everything.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_9f685a12

Ok, I kept some of the horrible floors, but overall I think it’s an improvement. The place is decorated in Modern Poor College Student, naturally.

Orlando and Marya will be sharing the front bedroom, while Dimitri and Romina get the back room.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_3f686a13

Orlando and Romina both started out with skilling to get caught up.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_bf686b7f

Romina was a little disappointed to discover that the other three all had class at the same time, leaving her in the house by herself.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_3f686c6b

“So, do you think we’ll all make the Dean’s List again this semester?”

“I hope so, if you and I can solve our grades glitch.”

Marya and Orlando are having grade bar problems – it says they need skills, but they don’t actually need them.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_5f6d55cb

I tried having Orlando and Marya move out, then back in. It worked for Orlando, but not for Marya.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_9f6d6610

So I moved the whole household out. That seemed to work better.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_bf6d6659

Dimitri and Romina had been in the middle of a date when they moved out, so they followed up on those wants.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_ff6d6689

Cupid’s arrow has struck! Dimitri and Romina surprised me by rolling simultaneous wants to get engaged.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_bf6d6756

Since I’m not allowing sims to get engaged until they’re both at least in junior year (due to the possibility of changing aspirations), they had to content themselves with woohoo.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_7f6d68fb

Oh, boy, they’re going to be all gooey lovey-dovey, now, aren’t they?

snapshot_3e3fd4be_5f6d6933

“Maybe we should make this a Greek House.”

How about not?

snapshot_3e3fd4be_3f6d69e4

Romina worked on her term paper while everyone else was at class, and thought about Dimitri.

(He added some facial hair since it’s one of Romina’s turn-ons. I think it looks good on him.)

snapshot_3e3fd4be_5f6d6d46

That evening, Orlando decided it was time for something he’d been wanting to do for a long, long time.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_bf6d6d56

“Oh my boolprop! I’m so surprised! Who could ever have anticipated this?”

She said yes, of course.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_3f6d6e07

I think you can guess how they celebrated.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_7f6d70f3

Orlando needed more friends, so he invited over Matthew Picaso. Matthew was happy to indulge him, of course.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_7f6d73da

I have no idea what’s wrong with Malvina here.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_bf6d741f

Romina challenged her to a game of chess to get her out of her slump.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_1f6d7519

Then this happened. Frankly, Dimitri looks pretty happy about it.

(I’m pretty happy about it, too. I really never meant for Malvina and Dimitri to get back together, since Malvina has 3 bolts with Denise Cooke-Pavlov and only 2 with Dimitri.)

snapshot_3e3fd4be_ff6d76ba

I’ve been focused on the other couple, but Orlando and Marya have spent the season all over each other, as usual.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_1f6d770c

They should probably think about getting curtains for those windows, but whatever.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_5f6d7912

“I love you…so much.”

snapshot_3e3fd4be_ff6d7a0a

While waiting for it to be time for the final, Romina invited Venyamin over, as he was the only one of the Hamilton triplets she hadn’t made friends with yet.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_ff6d7a7d

Carme and Michael wandered by as well. This household isn’t as into throwing parties as the Greek house, but it’s still fun to have people over.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_9f6d7c56

Everyone aced their finals and made the Dean’s List, naturally.

Larisa House

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_3f5e0017

Left to right: Feofil Pavlov, Mhairi Bruce, Malvina Bruce (seated), Anya Pavlov

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_bf5dfc44

The Pavlovs and the Bruces are seriously rich, so the Pavlovs donated the money to build a fancy luxury dorm. Sims have to have a total trust fund value of at least $30,000, including scholarships, to live here. The dorm houses up to 6 sims.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_df5dfc2f

Just because you’re rich does not mean you grow up in good clothes.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_9f7124dc

I quickly regretted the poker table when the dormies promptly moved in on it.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_3f71260f

So I got rid of it and replaced it with a photo booth. Every dorm should have one, for the woohoo drama if for no other reason.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_7f712637

As usual in my Uni households, term papers were done promptly, followed by red hands.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_df71276e

“I’m so excited we all got enough scholarships to get in here.”

As you can see, the table and chairs are a little higher quality than the typical dorm furnishings. On the other hand, they’re still eating mac & cheese grumpily prepared by an elderly cafeteria worker.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_9f712808

The dormies figured they’d better follow the lead of their playable counterparts, and Male Dormie figured he’d heartfart Mhairi for good measure.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_5f7129ed

Anya and the cheerleader don’t seem to get along for some reason.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_ff712aef

Anya had a rough night – she got struck by lightning and then didn’t make it to the bathroom in time. Well, I suppose that’s what she gets for playing catch in the rain.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_ff712b39

Apparently Male Dormie’s interest is reciprocated.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_3f712dc9

Party time! This group isn’t as into parties as the Greek house crowd, but they don’t keep to themselves as much as the Almond Street group does.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_3f71300a

Mauro and Anya are still getting along well.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_5f7130ec

Malvina decided studying was for the birds. She preferred to brownnose for her A.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_bf71317f

And then this happened. Professor Blondie being entirely inappropriate with his student. Nice job there.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_df7131b4

“You’re definitely one of my top students. You can expect an A this semester.”

“Cool!”

The inappropriateness, it burns…

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_5f713259

Fortunately, the party was technically over when the stove caught fire.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_df745208

Malvina got enough brownie points from making friends with her professor to skip class. She spent the time studying like a good little college student.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_9f7453ed

Ah, college students very busy playing video games. This is as it should be.

(Although I can never get the video game contest to work right. Anya wandered away before it was over.)

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_df74549c

“I’m so glad we grew up. We never got to play video games all day at home.”

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_7f74581f

They also got to spend a lot of time hanging out doing the slap dance.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_1f7458ff

Professor Inappropriate came by for some more inappropriateness.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_1f745a7e

“So I heard you’ll give me a good grade if I become best friends with you.”

“Well, of course I will, Miss Pavlov.”

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_bf745bf5

“That was some sweet woohoo! You are definitely getting top grades in my class!”

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_bf745c23

Meanwhile, Malvina found herself a special friend while on the rebound from Dimitri.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_1f745d65

“I think I’m in love with you.”

“That means I’m going to graduate summa cum laude, doesn’t it?”

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_df7460b7

Mhairi, meanwhile, found herself getting along great with Blond Male Dormie here.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_1f7462da

In fact, the only sim not falling in love was the Romance sim. She decided to spend the time playing angsty piano music.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_1f7461cc

That’s a new one. Malvina got to the piano Professor Inappropriate dropped off before he even got off the porch.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_5f74620d

I didn’t know who his gift was for, since 3 of the dorm’s residents have had outings with him. So the money from the piano went to dorm funds instead, and I bought them a bar.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_df746260

Malvina got to the bar just as quickly as she got to the piano. I think, despite the rebound relationship, that maybe she’s not taking the breakup well.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_df746300

Mhairi got in on the “playing angsty music” bandwagon. I have no idea why, other than her desire to maximize her Music & Dance enthusiasm.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_5f746381

Everyone finished the semester with perfect grades, though Mhairi’s the only one who got her A honestly.

That’s it for the first semester of Uni! Next up is the second Picaso household.
