Boy's Reaction When Accepted Into Clemson, Priceless

Posted: Updated:

A young man with down syndrome finds out he's been accepted to college, and his reaction will make your heart smile!

"It says congratulations," his dad tells him.

"I got…I got accepted?" he asks.

The student is 20 year old Rion Holcombe. Rion was accepted to a program at Clemson University called "Life."

He was so in disbelief that he had to take the letter and read it again.

"It says yes?" he asks. "YEESSS!"

The program is designed for students with intellectual disabilities who desire a college experience.

The video, uploaded to YouTube by Rion's mother, has almost gotten one million views. Viewers of the video have been touched.
