BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. — Graduation day at St. Norbert College in De Pere this month will have attendees seeing double — even triple.

A record number of twins will be commencing. Eight pairs of twins and three-quarters of a set of quadruplets are set to graduate from St. Norbert on May 18 with about 500 other students.

Some in this unique group of 19 students say going to college with your sibling look-a-like has its advantages. Ashley Saskowski, of West Allis, says you have a friend "no matter what."

WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/1u9RgGs ) says on the flip side, it can be tough to be an individual when you have an identical sibling on campus. Jolene Kerner, of Antigo, says she might be walking on campus and someone her sister knows will say hi, but she has no idea who they are.
