She lives with her roommates, Jared Starchild and Ty Bubbler. Sam is the only girl on campus who doesn't have a crush on Castor Nova, besides Jane Stacks who is already moved in with the Bright household. This is probably because Sam is not moved in when the game starts, and does not know anyone outside of her household, apart from Jane.
Her Lifetime want is randomized when Sim State University is added to a neighborhood. The want "Become Captain Hero" is only referenced in the game files. Like several other Sims from Sim State University, starts off with no gender preference. She is 72 hours away from the final exam in her first semester, when she is first moved into a household. When editing in SimPE, Sam's zodiac sign is not recognized.
Strangely when her relationships are viewed in SimPE, Sam recognizes Aiden Reamon as her uncle, but the relation isn't mutual, as Aiden doesn't even know her. Sam also recognizes Jane as her mother, and vice versa. The reasons for these unlikely family connections are unexplained, but there are a few other playable Sims from University that have these sorts of quirks.
