This series took place in an apartment building, numbered 227. The cast would frequently be found sitting outside on a large set of stone stairs, in some discussion that would unfold into the weekly plot line.

You got my butt pinched by some dock worker.
Dwayne Cleophus Wayne:
A butt pinch hurts a lot less then a bullet wound.
[snatching off his wig and slamming it angryly on the couch]

One Of The Greatest Shows That Took Place In A College
A Different World was a great show. I should have known the first episode that Whitley and Dwayne Wayne were going to get married! Each episode taught me something new about college. This show actually prepared me for college. But everything seemed so fun at Hillman College. Imagine how the show would have been if Lisa Bonet and Marisa Tomei wouldn't have left after the first season. Hillman college is a college that anyone would have wanted to go to. Halle Berry and Jada Pinkett were students there. And David Alan Grier and Whoopi Goldberg were teachers there.
