A 16-year-old Louisiana high school student is going to Harvard, and by the time he gets there many of his classmates will have seen the viral video of him reacting to news of his acceptance.

Among the slew of well-wishers from across the Twittersphere was Harvard alumnus and Brooklyn Nets basketball player Jeremy Lin. Surrounded by his classmates and family, the Opelousas, Louisiana teenager screamed and jumped for joy when he found out he had been admitted into the Ivy League university. The entire room burst with purest form of excitement.

The school's official Facebook page wrote: "HARVARD THREE-PEAT!"

It takes a village to raise a child - and it takes a classroom to celebrate a fellow student being accepted into an Ivy League school. After reading his acceptance letter, he thought that his "life had been changed forever". Earlier this December, Aryton's older brother Alex Little, a Senior at TM Landry, was accepted to Stanford University. My oldest son got into Stanford on Friday and we have been waiting for a response from Harvard, and I just can't believe it.

I don't know how to describe it, it was the best feeling.

The footage showed Little sitting in front of a laptop wearing a Harvard hoodie.
