Young Man With Down Syndrome Has the Best Reaction to College Acceptance Letter

Video

"Yes! Yeah! Yeah!"

'Tis the season when college acceptance letters are going out and students are making plans about where they'll be going to school in the fall.

While any college acceptance is a joyous occasion, few can rival the reaction of Noah Van Vooren.

Van Vooren -- of Little Chute, Wis. -- has Down syndrome and was recently accepted to attend Edgewood College in the state's capital of Madison.

Opening the envelope, Van Vooren's dad asked if he could read it to his son, to which Van Vooren said no, wanting to read the verdict himself.

"It says, Dear Noah, Yes … 2014-15 school.' I got accepted!" Noah shouted, throwing his hands victoriously in the air. "Yes! Dad, you rock, I love you!

"I got accepted! Yes! Yeah! Yeah!" Noah said, at one point taking off his Wisconsin Badgers sweatshirt in  jubilation.

(Note: While you might think that Van Vooren says a swear word toward the beginning of the video he actually said "Bucky Badger," which is the University of Wisconsin's mascot.)

Van Voreen will be attending Edgewood's "Cutting Edge Program," which is designed for students with "intellectual developmental disabilities."

At Little Chute High School, Van Vooren was the manager of the football team. Last season, Van Vooren made headlines when he scored a touchdown, defying doctor's prediction at birth that he would never walk.
