Getting into college is no easy feat, which is why students often celebrate once they receive that big envelope reading “Congratulations.” But in the age of social media, the festivities extend beyond family and friends, as teens take to their Twitter accounts to share the moment with their followers.

Following the trend of college acceptance videos, where students share the exact moment of opening their decision letter on camera, a number of soon-to-be high school graduates are now participating in photo shoots with their acceptance letters. Repping gear from the college or posing on campus, these photos show off the pride these students already have for their future school.

But even more inspiring are the stories that they share alongside the pictures — from those who are first-generation college students to those attending university on full scholarship.





Others who were lucky enough to receive multiple acceptances from prestigious universities are also participating in the social media trend — and even welcoming suggestions from followers on which school they should attend.



For Catherine Kim, who got into the University of Southern California, UC Berkeley, and UCLA, the schools themselves are even chiming in to win over the potential student.



With separate and personalized replies from the school’s associate dean, it seems like USC might be a good choice for Kim. But with the myriad school options and beautiful photos above, it seems that none of these students could go wrong.
