Dr. Riggs' Tips for Better Writing

Dr. Riggs' Rules for a Successful Semester

To work hard over petty things shows by the effort spent on trifles, that one is indifferent to nobler things. - Plutarch

The Summer 2009 Field Crew at the Pigg Site (5MT4802)

Work funded by Colorado Historical Fund Grant #2009-02-054

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people; to earn the appreciation of honest critics; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

   - Ralph Waldo Emerson
