Like many young men, Rion Holcombe wanted desperately to go to college. But unlike most young men, Holcombe has Down syndrome. And next year, he’ll be a Clemson Tiger.

Holcombe, 20, of Roebuck, South Carolina, was accepted into Clemson University’s LIFE program, which is “designed for students with intellectual disabilities who desire a postsecondary experience on a college campus.”

His parents filmed the moment he found out where he’d be going, and his joy is infectious.
