When the McCaughey septuplets were born, the family received another generous offer – a free college education for the seven siblings at various universities. Hannibal-LaGrange University in Missouri offered the septuplets a free high school education, and the state of Iowa offered scholarships to a state university of their choice. Natalie, Nathan, Kelsey and Joel accepted the full scholarships and went on to study at Hannibal-LaGrange University. Meanwhile, Kenny Jr. and Alexis stayed closer to home and decided to continue their studies at Des Moines Area Community College. One septuplet, Brandon, however, chose a very different route.
