It shows 20-year-old Rion Holcombe, who has Downs Syndrome, finding out he was accepted to Clemson University. After carefully reading the acceptance letter, Rion turns to his mother with a huge grin and exclaims, “I got accepted.”

The video, which seems to be going viral, has almost 800,000 views.

Rion will be a student in Clemon’s LIFE program, which lets students with disabilities continue their education and learn to be independent.

His mother, Susan Holcome, left a comment on the video that says, “A little explanation for those who find this perplexing….Rion was accepted into a special program called Clemson LIFE. This is an amazing two year program for a small number (15) of young adults with special needs. This isn’t a program in which one can earn a degree. Right now, Clemson is one of five universities in SC with a LIFE program. I love that kids like Rion get to experience college life and this type of independence. Proud of my alma mater!”

To apply for the LIFE program, Rion sent in a video application that showed him winning awards at swim meets, doing household chores, and attending prom.

It is clear from this touching video that Rion is thrilled to have the chance to be a college student. We wish him the best of luck.
