Quadruplets Join Texas A&M Class of 2010

By  | 

It's nothing new for Texas A&M to accept siblings, but this year a set of Texas quadruplets are part of the 2010 class.

Reagan, Patrick, Daniel, and Kayla Thompson of Stephenville are settled in their dorms and ready to start school.

And, it wasn't a hard decision for the four to attend Texas A&M together.

"There's never a dull moment," Reagan Thompson said. "There's always someone there to help you with something whether it be sports or homework or just somebody to lean on."

Throughout their lives the Thompson four have depended on one another..

"We pretty much stick together most of the time," Daniel Thompson said.

And you won't see that changing now that they're in college.

"It's not going to be bad because you got three other people right beside you," Patrick Thompson said.

The only difference now, the quads will have a roommate that's not a Thompson.

Reagan, Daniel, and Patrick are living in one dorm, but they're all on different floors.

Kayla didn't go too far, her dorm is right next door.

This way her brothers can keep a close eye on potential suitors.

"Dating wise I guess they're really protective," Kayla Thompson said. "They're like who is he, we want to talk to him, we want to meet him. But it's fun. I'm glad my brothers are here for me."

The Thompson's always knew they'd go to Texas A&M.

Their parents met while students here, and they grew up going to Aggie football games.

In fact Texas A&M was the only college the Thompson's applied to.

"We were born and we had A&M twelfth man towels hanging over our cribs," Reagan said. "Pretty much all of our lives we were set to be Aggies."

Now that they are, the Thompson's are ready to start their college careers.

"I love sports and play all sports," Daniel said. "Aggie Basketball did awesome last year and football games."

"The football games are awesome with the Aggie yell leaders and everything," Kayla said. "Just getting involved in different organizations."

"All the games, the football games I'm pretty excited about that," Patrick said.

"I can't wait this is the time of our lives," Reagan said. "I can't wait to get going this is an awesome experience."

The four say they won't get homesick because they're together.

And even though they say they'll miss their parents, they'll be there for every Aggie football game.

Kayla is entering the Mays Business School.

Daniel, Patrick, and Reagan are majoring in Agriculture Economics.
