Once settled on your character players will jump into the university life as they are greeted by a senior classmate who directs you to the appropriate dorm (based on which speciality you picked earlier).

Once settled in players can start to build their entourage of friends to help you achieve fame status, while the game features a number of virtual friends to connect with you can also bring your real life friends into the game through Facebook.
