A set of quintuplets graduated from the same university on the same university on the same weekend- with degrees in five different subjects.
Enna, Maria, Emilio, George and John Diaz, 21, donned their caps and gowns to accept their certificates after four years of study at the University of North Texas.
The quintuplets, who were born within three minutes of each other in July 1996, attended the same elementary, middle and high school and even went to prom together.
After all being accepted to the same University, they lived in the same college houses and revised together in the library in preparation for their final exams.
The siblings, from Keller, Texas, worked part-time in restaurants took out student loans; and used the University’s financial and program to put themselves through university.
They shared many classes but they were; all doing very different majors- graduating with degrees in biology, finance, Spanish, social communication and art last month.
Parents, salesman Jorge, 55 and full-time mum Enna Diaz 55 are super proud of their kids. Jorge, originally from Guadalajara, Mexico, said ever since they were; born people were asking me how i would ever put five of them through college.
It has been dream to see them through college. Watching them graduating was the best feeling any parents can have but multiply that by five. We did it. George, a Spanish and logistics major, he will never be; a happy as his dad was; watching his quintuplets accept their degrees.
He said; I dont think I’ll never be half as happy as my dad was when we graduated. It was; always his main goal to get us all through college and he was; like ‘Holy Molly, I did it. It was great to start something like college with my siblings and finish it together. I know it meant a lot for all of us to watch our mum and dad in the audience as we get our degrees.
