Is Chanel Rion a Harvard Graduate?
On the surface, Chanel Rion do have a degree from Harvard University, but in the closer inspection, it is much complicated. In 2010, Rion began the International Relations Course with the Harvard University's Extension School. It is a separate organization to the main college and offers non-degree programs with far less rigorous or competitive entry requirements. She graduated in 2015 with a four-year bachelors and one-year graduate degree.

Chanel is engaged to Navy Veteran Courtland Skyes since July 2016. The couple first met at Harvard during a CIA recruiting event. Over the years, Rion and Skyes' relationship has gained quite an attention among the public because of their very conservative gender roles. The Navy veteran is quoted saying,
"I want to come home to a home-cooked dinner at six every night, one that she fixes and one that I expect my daughters to learn to fix after they become traditional homemakers and family wives."
Surprisingly, Rion agrees with her fiance's statement and told DailyMail.com,
"I consider cooking my job even if I have a career and even if crazy feminists think I shouldn't."
It looks like sharing the same view of point in life is the reason behind Rion's and her partner's strong relationship. The pair are engaged for the past four years and in May 2020 were planning a wedding which was postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
