10 Reasons Dwayne Wayne is Bae

SCROLL DOWN FOR PICS If you have never seen "A Different World", you wouldn’t know why there was a mutual disappointment in the realization that you could not apply to the HBCU "Hillman" because along with "The Pit", it did not exist. This show followed Denise Huxtible from the Brooklyn based sitcom "the Cosby Show" down to the family Alma mater Hillman located in Virginia.
