The University is a building while the Limited-Time Quest Academia Nuts!
Just having built your University you can enrol four students. These students can be chosen from any of the player's Facebook friends but this does not mean any messages will be posted to non-players. You can send your students to work gathering Simoleons and/or materials for you, and also to earn you collectibles of the new Academia Nuts-theme. It is possible to send your students to either businesses, factories or attractions. Each place of work brings different collectibles and with each workplace you may also choose the duration the student will spend there (four, eight, twelve, eighteen, twenty-four or thirty-six hours).
Upgrading to a 1-star University the player will be able to enrol a further four students once each place is unlocked using Academia Nutscollectibles.
