Quadruplets Celebrate Graduating From Yale University

A set of Ohio quadruplets is celebrating their joint graduation from Yale University — and revealing that their four years in the Ivy League were a great opportunity to branch out on their own.

Aaron, Nick, Zach, and Nigel Wade, all 22, spent their whole lives together in Liberty Township, Ohio, where they were known collectively as The Quads or the Wade brothers.

But even though all four attended the same college — which had a total undergraduate population of just 6,092 last year — they admitted to People this week that they only saw one another a couple of times a semester as they all pursued different majors and extracurriculars.

The Wades naturally spent a lot of time growing up and had friends in common — but all that changed when they went away to Yale.

'In high school, we all knew the same people. So in a sense, that didn't allow us to divert as much as we might've wanted to,' said Nick. 'But in college, because there's so many different types of people, and we had so many different diverse interests, I think we were able to carve our paths in our own way.'
