"Snaps are sent to admitted students that have shared their Snapchat usernames with the university," the school's social media specialist told BuzzFeed News.

"It is an opt-in situation. Snaps are not sent to students that are not accepted," she added.

The school also sends a traditional acceptance via the ~traditional~ mail.

The university first began using Snapchat when they realized it was the perfect way to connect with prospective students.

This social media specialist said that the Snapchat acceptance comes "after a couple years of dreaming about it."

So far, the incoming freshman are fans. Many have even replied with "excited selfies," the specialist said.
