A Different World

Denise Huxtable is in ``a different world'' -- predominantly black Hillman College -- in this popular ``Cosby Show'' spinoff. A sophomore, Denise shares her quarters with divorced freshman Jaleesa and naive Maggie, one of Hillman's few white students. Other Hillman students include Whitley, a Southern belle full of attitude; Dwayne, a math major, and his best friend, Ron; and Col. Taylor, aka ``Dr. War.''
