Chip And Joanna Gaines ‘Graduated’ From Harvard And Their Photos Are So Cute
Congrats, Chip and Joanna!
Graduation season is in full swing, and two famous grads, Chip and Joanna Gaines of “Fixer Upper” fame, just got their degrees from Harvard … sort of.
The HGTV legends participated in the Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports program at Harvard Business School, a four-day intensive program focused on entertainment management. Joanna took to Instagram to praise the program and what they learned from it.
Alongside a series of photos from the program, including a group shot of all the participants, a picture of a lecture featuring her name placard and a shot of Chip sporting Harvard gear, she wrote, “What we witnessed this week at @harvardhbs was human beings at their very finest.”
“We learned from one another and spoke into each other’s lives, sometimes challenging but always valuing every perspective,” she added in the caption.

What we witnessed this week at @harvardhbs was human beings at their very finest. 85 people from all around the world, from all different walks of lives, with different cultural backgrounds, religions, political beliefs and professions. We learned from one another and spoke into each other's lives, sometimes challenging but always valuing every perspective. Not a single one of us were alike, and yet by doing something as simple as listening to and respecting one another, we were challenged and made better. Thankful for this opportunity @anitaelberse – your leadership and your passion caused grown, busy adults to think with curiosity about our own businesses and about the world around us. Oh and one more thing… I know I might be biased but I'd like to officially cast my vote for Chip as CLASS PREZ. #ChipForPrez (Photo by @evephoto ) #bems
“Not a single one of us were alike, and yet by doing something as simple as listening to and respecting one another, we were challenged and made better,” she continued.
She went on to thank one of the program’s instructors, professor Anita Elberse, for her “leadership and passion.”
At the end of the post, she gave a shout-out to her husband, Chip, and joked that she’d like to nominate him for class president.
In a separate post with more photos from their time at the Ivy League university, she continued to give props to Chip, writing, “Course complete! School looks good on you @chipgaines #ChipForClassPrez #bems.”
The Gaineses weren’t the only famous faces to take part in the program. Other celebrities who participated included singer Ciara, NBA stars Kevin Love and Julius Randle, actor Eric Olsen and Australian soccer player Tim Cahill.
Congratulations to all the graduates!
