Possible future

By 2049, there existed a theoretical physics building at CCU called the "Tracy Brand Building", named after the physicist and former student.[9]

Original timeline: Barry's daughter, Nora West-Allen, followed in her father's footsteps and also earned a criminology degree from Central City University.[8]

Current timeline: By destroying Cicada's dagger, a ripple effect in the timeline occurred and erased Nora from existence. Due to this, there is now no known record of her in the university.[10]
