Mark Zuckerberg is the god of social media who has changed the way we interact, so it’s hard to imagine he was once a nervous teen awaiting his university acceptance letter.
The 33-year-old Internet entrepreneur posted a nostalgic home-made video taken by his dad when he received his acceptance letter from Harvard University, on an ancient desktop computer that looks like it would sink a ship.
It was only a year after this that Zuckerberg was to drop out of university in order to run with his Facebook vision.
My dad took this video when I got accepted to Harvard. Next week I'm going back for commencement to get my degree. #tbt

Both father and son are radiating pride, unaware of the insane levels of success that Mark would have.
Zuckerberg will be returning to Harvard next week in order to finally collect his degree.
One commenter pointed out he didn’t do any of the required curriculum for his course.
I think he probably surpassed the requirements for a computer science degree when he completed the Internet.
