Colton Siegmund: 'Continually develop your foreign language skills'

May 23, 2016

Colton Siegmund

Near Eastern Studies  Classics

Fort Worth, TX

What, if any, research projects did you participate in at Cornell?

I have worked at the Jonathan and Jeannette Rosen Tablet Collection and the Malcolm and Carolyn Wiener Laboratory for Aegean and Near Eastern Dendrochronology. For my honors thesis, I have been translating a previously unknown early Old Babylonian royal inscription written in Sumerian.

If you were to offer advice to an incoming first year student, what would you say?

Continually develop your foreign language skills throughout your time at Cornell.
