At the age of 15, King passed the exam and entered Morehouse.
The summer before his last year at Morehouse, in 1947, the 18-year-old King chose to enter the ministry.
King once reproved another student for keeping beer in his room, saying they had shared responsibility as African Americans to bear "the burdens of the Negro race." For a time, he was interested in Walter Rauschenbusch's "social gospel." In his third year at Morehouse, King became romantically involved with the white daughter of an immigrant German woman who worked as a cook in the cafeteria.
The daughter had been involved with a professor prior to her relationship with King.
