There are three things you can do if you’re a teen girl without a date for senior prom. You can go with a group of friends like you’ve probably done for every other school dance; you can stay home and skip the dance altogether (like I did); or you can take a date few other seniors can top– your Harvard acceptance letter. That’s what Priscilla Samey did.

The senior at Champlin Park High School in Brooklyn Park, MN, tweeted a photo of her kissing her Harvard letter on prom night with the caption: 

Couldn’t find a man to accept me for prom so I took a college that did 💕🙏🏾

Buzzfeed reached out to Priscilla about her date of choice and she told them, “At first I was disappointed but going by myself allowed me to avoid all the competitiveness and expenses that usually go with prom.” She also didn’t have to worry about keeping up with her date all night. “He stayed in the car most of the time,” she joked to BuzzFeed. “He’s shy and also I didn’t want it to get trampled.”

Harvard is actually just one of many top-tier schools Priscilla can attend. As she noted in another tweet, she’s been accepted to Yale, Brown, Princeton, Columbia, University of Pennsylvania, and Cornell as well.

Look at God indeed.
