Summary Edit

Whitley is infatuated with Julian, a handsome and debonair transfer student who is organizing a boycott against a company with South African ties. Whitley volunteers to help out in the fight against apartheid until she learns that the boycott is against the company that has offered Kim a scholarship. A livid Whitley accuses Julian of dictating social responsibility and cancels their date. Meanwhile, Kim rejects the scholarship. Julian re-examines his position and the loving couple calls a truce.
