A Different World

1987-1993 Sitcom

Denise Huxtable from ‘The Cosby Show’ enters the Hillman College, a prestigious school that historically has been an all-black college and was also the alma mater of her parents and grandfather. As a sophomore student, she has adjusted to life away from home but has to deal with her school fellows, some of whom are funny and friendly and others down right malicious. Denise must carefully make her way through the academic year in an effort to have as much fun as possible but avoid getting into trouble at the same time.
