Susan Traver was the first of her family to attend college, and she began at the Lima branch of The Ohio State University. At the time, classes met in a high school since no buildings had been constructed yet for the branch. After transferring to the Columbus campus, Traver attended classes while working, first as a keypunch operator, then in a social services position with the state of Ohio. She also recalls friends getting arrested during the 1970 demonstrations for missing curfew, and she describes the stress and pressure felt by students throughout the Vietnam War era. After graduating in 1972, she moved to Toledo where she worked as a rehabilitation counselor, and she earned a master’s degree at the University of Toledo in 1992.
