Kanye West was at Harvard's School of Design yesterday and fiance Kim Kardashian couldn't resist posting this Instagram photo, writing, "My baby speaking at the Harvard Graduate School of Design."

Yes, she was there too.

West, in town to perform at the TD Garden last night during the opening weekend of his Yeezus tour, did a lecture first at Harvard as part of the "DONDA Design Lecture Series," E Online reports.

DONDA, named after his late mother Donda West, is a creative design company West launched in 2012.

Virgil Abloh, the creative director of Kanye's DONDA brand, posted this to Instagram, writing: "Just gave a talk at Harvard GSD with Kanye. Super surreal. #DONDA design lecture series #yeezustour."

West then surprised the Harvard School of Design office with free tickets to his show, reports
