Connecticut College
270 Mohegan Ave, New London, CT 06320

After Wesleyan University announced in 1909 that it would no longer admit women to the school, towns acrossMore Connecticut began offering space for a new campus and a committee was formed to establish a new college. About a third of the population of New London and the surrounding towns contributed to the $100,000 needed to establish the school, exceeding that goal by $35,000, and Connecticut College was officially founded in 1911.

Today, the school is a co-educational liberal arts institute overlooking Long Island Sound and bordered by a 750-acre arboretum. Its curriculum includes interdisciplinary studies, international programs, funded internships, student-faculty research and service learning.
