The Sims 3 University Life is the next expansion for The Sims 3, and developer EA Maxis released screenshots and a walkthrough video today to give players a tour of the college experience within.

University Life lets young Sims enroll in school and take part in classes, keggers, extracurricular activities and jobs while at university. The video walkthrough below offers a glimpse at college life for a few different Sims, showing off how much the experience can differ from student to student. The expansion is set for release March 5; those who pre-order it from Origin will receive the School Spirit Pack, which includes additional Sim customization options and a scooter.

Maxis also released the first screenshots of The Sims 3 Island Paradise, an expansion that is due out in June (last two images above). It includes new elements such as resorts and houseboats, and will let Sims dive underwater to go exploring below the surface.

Both expansion packs were announced last month. Check out the University Life walkthrough below.
