Different World is one of every Black college kid's, HBCU or not, favorite shows to watch. It is now unfortunately hurricane season and Hurricane Harvey, Irma, and Jose are huge threats to HBCUs across the country.

Hurricane Harvey threatened Texas Southern University last week, and now Irma is threatening Florida A&M and is slowly making her way to Atlanta. School is officially closed on Monday for Clark Atlanta University, Spelman College, and Morehouse College.
