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.
