Triplets Carry on the Broad College of Business Family Tradition

What’s better than celebrating a graduate in the family? Celebrating three. Triplets, that is.

Smith family at commencement
Jake, Matt and Chris Smith celebrate commencement with their Spartan family

Brothers Matt, Chris and Jake Smith, fraternal triplets from Midland, Michigan received their diplomas at the Broad College of Business commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 7. But their achievements aren’t exactly a first for the Smiths: their grandmother worked in the athletic office, parents, Scott and Cassie Smith, graduated from the business school, one freshman sister is a Spartan and another will likely follow in 2017. This family, as many would say, bleeds green.

“Before the triplets could speak they were attending MSU football and basketball games. The first ducks they fed were at the Red Cedar River. Next to our home in Midland, I can honestly say MSU has been their second home,” Cassie said.

Read more about the Smith triplets, their time at MSU and what’s next as they begin their next chapters as reported by Detroit Free Press.
