    Nice! Will you accept transfer or “out of state” students?

    1. HeredonCove Says:

      That would be super fun and I would be down for whichever way we manage to do it.

  2. trntm Says:

    Ohh, I concur. I can think of a few AV students who would like to attend.

    I love this, I will definately be swiping some of your certification details. When will we see this in action in your hood?

      We can totally set up an transfer program, they would have fun here.

      I got the certification idea from Fabrice’s desire to be an artist and reading up on some Sims 3 details. I have a few more that I want to add.

      There are a few Sims that need to go back to school, so as soon as the new laptop comes I’ll start pumping this out

    This is amazing!!! I really want to put up all my college information and figure it out to this much detail now. Perfect timing, I’ve been rebuilding mine since summer, and I just may get this all figured out now before I finish rebuilding.

      I’ve been working on it slowly too, now all I have to do is develop the actual site. I don’t have a real push to develop it because all my kids are SO young. I need to get a move on.
