"The Sims 2 University" : Greek Houses


Greek Houses are "The Sims 2" version of college fraternities and sororities. They, of course, have their own Maxis spin on them. Both males and females can join a Greek House, which in traditionally they wouldn't be able to in real life.

Benefits of Greek Houses

  • Motives decrease slower
  • Members visit campus and bring back pizza or furniture.
  • Throw toga parties
  • More Sims walk by.
  • Influence pledges to do your work (including your term paper) without using acclimated influence points.

Joining a Greek House
A sim that is renting or lives in a dorm, can join a Greek House by using the 'Ask to Join Greek House' selection on the phone. Members living in the Greek House will come over. Your Sim will be required to gain a certain number of relationship points with each member. The easiest way is to call each member and develop a friendship before you call to ask to join the Greek House. If you are already friends with the members, once they come over, you will be accepted when they arrive. If you do not have the phone option, your university probably does not have a Greek House.

Getting Pledges for Your Greek House
Members of a Greek House do not have to live at the house. They can still live in a dorm or a house they are renting. It is a big advantage for your Sims living in the Greek House to ask Sims to pledge. There is a pledging period where Sims can influence the pledges to do anything they need done. I use this to my Sims advantage by influencing them to write term papers. Pledges usually can get 2 papers done during the pledge period if you have them start right away.

Greek House members ask potential pledges to pledge by using the 'ask to pledge' menu item when the Sims is visiting the Greek House. For outgoing pledging Sims, they need to have a daily relationship score of 40 and lifetime of 5, with shy Sims needed a score of 50 and a lifetime of 10. If you do not know what the future pledge's personality is like, I just wait until the Sims are friends. This way you do not lose points for the refusal to pledge.

Greek House Charter
Any house being rented can be turned into a Greek House. A resident only needs to 'Apply for Charter' on any house phone or cell phone. The household will have to pay 20 simoleons for the Greek House charter.
