Zack and Cody Dylan and Cole Sprouse graduated from New York University on Wednesday, and in doing so induced nostalgia overload among millennials everywhere. Because our beloved Zack and Cody Dylan and Cole are now grown-ups.
Best known for their series The Suite Life of Zack and Cody (which premiered 10 years ago), the pair stuck together after graduating from the preteen acting machine (a.k.a the Disney Channel) when they both decided to attend NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study.
And on Wednesday, the Sprouse twins graduated with the rest of the NYU Class of 2015 at Yankee Stadium. Dylan received a diploma for his concentration in video game design and Cole graduated as an archeology major.
Sure, their original series ended in 2008 and the spin-off, The Suite Life on Deck, ended in 2011, but aren’t they supposed to stay young forever? At least NYU’s graduation robes were purple, a nice coincidence for Zack and Cody fans.
