Ranked among the most selective private liberal arts colleges in the nation, Connecticut College has an enrollment of 1,900 men and women from 42 states, Washington D.C., and 41 countries. Forty percent of students are men, 20 percent are students of color.|
The College was founded in 1911, but its history began in 1909 when Wesleyan University announced that it would no longer offer admission to women. At that time, more women than ever were seeking higher education and demanding the right to vote. Elizabeth C. Wright, a Wesleyan alumna, rose to the challenge by convincing others to explore the idea of founding a new college. A committee was formed and towns across the state of Connecticut began offering prospective sites.
