I Know alot of people that disliked this show but I simply loved it...Made me want to go to college a little bit....go figures lol. Taking place in Hillman College, a fictional historically black college in the state of Virginia.The series frequently depicted members of the major historically African American fraternities and sororities (along with the fictional Kappa Lambda Nu fraternity and Alpha Delta Rho sorority).While it was a spin-off from the Cosby Show, A Different World typically addressed issues that were avoided by the Cosby Show writers (race and class relations, the Equal Rights Amendment). One episode that aired in 1990 was one of the first American network television episodes to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
Aired September 24th 1987 and was cancelled July 9, 1993 went 6 seasons strong.
Always loved the opening credits lol
