The Daisy Chain remains a beloved practice dating back more than a century.

Newcomb College juniors carry the Daisy Chain during the commencement ceremony in 1935. Originating in 1909 on the Newcomb campus, the chains typically consisted of over 1,000 daisies, and were sometimes made from clover, oleander, magnolia or daisies collected from campus gardens and neighbors’ yards. Although daisy chains were once a frequent sight on women’s college campuses, Newcomb has one of the few remaining chains in the country.
