College is a dream for many people, and 20-year-old Rion Holcombe just had his dream come true.

Holcombe lives with down syndrome and was recently accepted to Clemson University’s LIFE program, which is designed for people with “intellectual disabilities who desire a post-secondary experience on a college campus.”
