Connecticut College in New London started out as Connecticut College for Women in 1891. The school was established during the time when Wesleyan University closed its doors to women.

One site says.....

The college was founded in 1911 as "Connecticut College for Women" in response to Wesleyan Universityclosing its doors to women in 1909; it shortened its name to "Connecticut College" in 1969 when it began admitting men.
