Arthur Love

Arthur Love is a freshman at Washington and Lee University. Arthur is also the first student in my family to attend college and is the recipient of a competitive full-ride scholarship at W&L.For the past two summers Arthur has been working in a prostate cancer lab at Loma Linda University on a groundbreaking experiment connecting glucocorticoids to prostate cancer cell progression in African-American men which will be published next year. Arthur knows his way around publications. He was an opinion and features columnist for his high school newspaper The North Star, for which he wrote a number of fashion columns and acted as editor for the sports page. Arthur also held the position of executive editor and content manager of the online edition of The North Star. In the past three years, The North Star came second and fourth in the National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) competition for broadsheet publications. In high school, Arthur was president of the couture club. On the subject of fashion, Arthur notes “A wise woman once said that fashion was the art of looking good and feeling fine. Although fashion is not really an entity that one can fully define, I feel that Lady Gaga was onto something. Fashion is something that you play around with. There is not a science to it. Things change, trends collapse and fall. All we can do is live in the moment and as long as we look good and feel fine, then we have achieved our goal at the end of the day.” Arthur is interested in majoring in neuroscience and minoring in theatre, a lifelong passion. After Washington and Lee University, Arthurs plans on obtaining his MD/ PhD at a reputable medical school and eventually becoming either a neurosurgeon or a psychiatrist. However, Arthur is open to several career experiences.
