Two weeks ago Rion Holcombe, 20, recieved a letter in the mail telling him he had been accepted into the Clemson University LIFE programme in South Carolina - a two year programme designed to give students with intellectual disabilities an experience on a college campus. The joy the news brings him is priceless: 

His mum, Susan Holcombe, posted the video earlier this month, and it's already gained almost 500,000 views.

"This is an amazing two year programme for a small number (15) of young adults with special needs," Susan Holcombe explains on her YouTube account. "This isn't a programme 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!"

Enjoy college Rion!

Yes, it's been done for centuries.
