Over the holiday break, many future Cougars received the good news that they had been accepted at the College of Charleston. Several of the early applicants who received a special folder in the mail informing them that they were in took to Twitter and Instagram to share their acceptance with the rest of the world.

Here are a few of the smiling faces and excited Tweets.
