Social groups are groups of townies introduced in The Sims 3: University Life. They consist of Jocks, Nerds, and Rebels. Being in a social group and doing compatible activities increases this social group hidden skill.
Reaching level 8 in any social group unlocks an additional trait slot for the Sim. A trait related to the social group is proposed to fill this slot, but it may be exchanged for any other eligible trait. The original five traits and the university graduation trait cannot be edited during this selection, and the new social group trait must be compatible with those traits. Reaching level 8 in an additional social group permits the trait in the social group trait slot to be changed.
