* Community colleges (not just in California, even though it does have a large community college system) often have the reputation of attracting huge numbers of students from local high schools who continue the same cliques they were in before. The old joke was that a community college was a "high school with [[EverybodySmokes ashtrays]]".

The university is often located within a reasonable distance to the original high school, to allow or imply limited interaction with the parents and old shopkeepers; {{egregious}} cases will have the old faculty follow the students to the university -- if they were sufficiently a part of the old cast -- which makes no sense whatsoever. Despite the fact that the original high school show depicted the cast as a wide range of academic talent, ranging from slacker to valedictorian, all of the principal cast members of the show apply, are accepted, and elect to go to the same university -- and often take the same courses. Also, as a general rule of thumb, ''everybody'' at this university lives in a dorm. Even though, in RealLife, many college students either commute from home or rent an apartment (some universities, in fact, don't even have dormitories!).

However, in RealLife, many students usually end up going to colleges relatively close to home (at least to schools in their home state/province, if not in their home city), and many college students end up either commute from home or commuting and/or rent an apartment (some universities, in fact, colleges/universities don't even have dormitories!).

*** Between the two of them, they boast almost 40 full-size campuses, plus hundreds of smaller sites that house specific facilities. Therefore, for most urban or suburban-dwelling teenagers, there is indeed a "neighborhood" university of this type, especially since a good chunk of them are located in the L.A. and the San Francisco areas.

* ''ArchieComics'' has a California ''high school'', as demonstrated with the Little Archie comics; almost all of the characters, including the entire faculty, moved from Riverdale Elementary to Riverdale High. Ms. Grundy also appears to be the only English teacher at both schools, because she's always seen as the cast's English teacher (with scenes referring to summer implying that they had her the previous year and will have her the next, as they eternally go through high school). Mrs. Beazly also appears to be the only member of the cafeteria staff.

* ''Everyone'' in the MarvelUniverse seemingly goes to college in one of two places, the fictional Empire State University (ESU), or The Xavier Institute for Higher Learning (if you're a mutant). The latter offers junior high through post-graduate level courses.

* As for private universities, the University of Southern California (USC) and Stanford University are also located near major urban areas: L.A. in the case of USC and Silicon Vallery for Stanford. A good number of the major computing startups were actually started by Stanford alumni. Both universities have programs that reflect their surrounding areas. USC has one of the premier film schools given its proximity to Hollywood and Stanford has one of the top computer science programs in the world.
