ACI NAMES FOUR STUDENTS AS HUMANITIES FELLOWS 

The Associated Colleges of Illinois named four Trinity students as Chicago Humanities Fellows for 2002. Seniors Ariadne Khatib (Midlothian, Illinois) and Joel Poortenga (Abbotsford, British Columbia), and juniors Tyler Ryan (Brampton, Ontario) and Hilary Van Dyk (Frankford, Ontario) were among more than 20 students chosen from colleges and universities throughout the state.

The Humanities Fellows are invited to participate in the Chicago Humanities Festival in November and meet with presenters at special programs for students. The program seeks to make the humanities an integral part of daily life by promoting cultural, artistic, and educational opportunities.
 "It is an honor to have been selected, and I am looking forward to it," Van Dyk, an art major, said. "The Festival will enhance my undergraduate experience, create a broader base from which I can educate others, and forever influence my personal work as an artist."

Initiated in 1990, the Chicago Humanities Fellowship presents a festival each November that celebrates ideas within civic life. Noted artists, writers, scholars, historians, musicians, performers, and others express their talents, centering on a theme of universal interest; this year's theme is "Brains & Beauty."
