Born in Milwaukee Dahmer moved to Akron Ohio with his family at the age of eight years old.  After his parents went through a nasty divorce, his father paid for him to go to The Ohio State University in Columbus fall of 1978.   At this time Ohio State was an open enrollment institution as long as you were a resident of the state.

According to univdistcol Dahmer lived in Morrill Tower in room 540 or 541.  Dahmer already had a problem with alcohol, so it’s no surprise that he frequented bars and carry-outs in The Short North.  The amount of alcohol he was drinking was expensive, so Dahmer allegedly sold plasma and blood at a local bank for $10 a pop.
