Rion Holcombe has Down's syndrome, but he also has dreams, and one of them is attending college. So, lucky for us, his parents videotaped the 17-year-old from Spartanburg, South Carolina opening some special mail he recently received: an acceptance letter into the ClemsonLIFE program at Clemson University.

Here's how the university describes the program on its website:

The mission of the ClemsonLIFEâ„¢ Program at Clemson University is to provide a coordinated course of study that includes career exploration and preparation along with self-awareness, discovery, and personal improvement through a framework of courses, job internships, and community participation.

Watch the pure joy in his reaction for yourself.
