Courtesy Randolph-Macon College(ASHLAND, Va.) -- Getting to know your new classmates can be one of the hardest parts of starting life as a college student, but four freshmen at a Virginia college already have that problem solved.
The freshmen are quadruplets who each chose, on their own, to attend the same college, Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia.
The 17-year-old siblings - Jake, Hannah, Lexi and Rachel Jones - toured around 10 college campuses before they each individually chose Randolph-Macon.
The four-some discovered they'd all picked the same school after their parents, Scott and Deann Jones, asked them each to make a list of their top schools, without showing each other their picks.
"It was definitely funny," Rachel Jones told ABC News of the moment. "We aren’t exactly alike so we didn’t expect to all go to the same school but now that I think about it, I think we all could tell."
"We all loved it when we came here and we had so many good things to say about it," she said of Randolph-Macon. "I could tell, at least, that we all really enjoyed it."
The siblings, from Chestertown, Maryland, are members of the college’s 473-member Class of 2019.
Move-in day for the quadruplets earlier this month involved the family mini-van, a 10-foot U-Haul truck, suitcases and sports gear and over 100 boxes, each closed with a different-colored duct tape for each sibling.
The siblings all moved into the same co-ed residence hall, with two of them, Hannah and Lexi, rooming together. Rachel is their suite-mate while Jake lives down the hall.
"It’s really nice to be with all of them and it made it a lot easier," Rachel said. "We’ve been all hanging out. It's nice to have them here and to meet who they get close with."
The siblings started classes Monday and though they each chose the college, the four are going their separate ways when it comes to majors.
Jake is studying communications, while Rachel is pursuing psychology, Hannah is going pre-med to become a physical therapist and Lexi is majoring in English.
Back home, the quadruplets' parents are adjusting to life without the hustle and noise of four teenagers, while their younger sister, 12-year-old Olivia, is adjusting to having her own bedroom all to herself.
"She loves it," Rachel said of her younger sister's not-too-difficult adjustment. "She was super excited."
