On National College Decision Day, which took place May 1, high school seniors across the country shared their excitement for reaching an important milestone in their lives: getting accepted into college. 

Many new Lakers used social media to share their decision to attend Grand Valley. 

Austin Marsman tweeted, "I made it official a while back, but I truly can't wait to attend @GVSU!"

Twitter user Kelsi Marie said, "Excited to be a Laker for the next four years (and for a lifetime)."

Instagram user Martha Mendez said, "From the moment I stepped on campus, I knew I was home."
