Mark Zuckerberg shared a look at his reaction to finding out he was accepted to Harvard University.

In the video Zuckerberg posted to Facebook Thursday, filmed by his dad, the Facebook CEO lets out a single “yay” as he reads the email saying he would join Harvard University’s class of 2006. His father’s reaction is noticeably more excited. “Alright! Yes! Great!” his father yells off-camera.

The Facebook founder, who ended up dropping out of Harvard, posted the video in light of his upcoming commencement speech at the school on May 25.
