comment Why does “unisex” mean both sexes?
@Martin Many colleges and universities used to have exclusively male students. When that changed and women were admitted, the institutions became "co-educational." The women were referred to as "co-educational students" or "co-eds" and although technically this could apply to the men as well, it was associated with the women because their presence made the institution mixed-sex.
