On September 24th, 1987, A Different World aired its first episode. This spinoff from The Cosby Show followed Denise Huxtable to Hillman College, a historically black college in Virginia, that addressed issues that The Cosby Show did not such as race, equal rights, and even the HIVS/AIDS epidemic.

With episodes that dealt mainly with friendship, romances and fraternity and sorority lifeΒ may be the reason for the increase of enrollment at historically black colleges and universities during itsΒ time on air.
