Rollo May’s college career. He enters college at Michigan State, becomes a student rebel, and leaves for a more appropriate campus. He goes to Oberlin, where his love of antiquity is born and commitment to a religious calling in Christianity is solidified. At MSC he encounters Bennett “Buck” Weaver through work at the YMCA. Weaver gets him into Oberlin. All during college, he participates in various programs of the national YMCA, including some that exposed him to therapeutic forms of pastoral counseling. Oberlin helped to shape his liberal Christian outlook and also his passions for philosophy, music, and art. He also began to perfect his style of synthesizing ideas in various class assignments. Finally, he followed the Oberlin tradition of doing missionary work after college, in May’s case in Greece.
