      1. The famous TV shows “Heroes”, in the last season, the character Claire was supposed to be attending some Arlington University, but it was UCLA.

        Also How I met your mother, Ted was teaching at some university. IDK what the university it is in the show, but it was filmed infront of Royce Hall.
