The Senior Class Chain of Office is worn by the president of the senior class at the College of William and Mary for official functions. At the end of the commencement ceremony, after the last faculty member has exited the auditorium, the president of the graduating class presents the Senior Class Chain of Office to the incoming president of the senior class.
