He was my Sr advisor in 1989 and I took 2-3 courses with him and I cherish the guidance, expertise, finesse, decency, class, and goodness of this happy, kind, and vividly brilliant gem of aHuman being. One astute English professor! Long live Gillin! Very fond of him! He is priceless and everyone wishes he was their relative! He spends time helping!

He is the spiffiest old man dresser. His outfits made it worth going to class. He is a great story teller and just a nice man. If you go to him in advance with your papers, he is very helpful.

Love this man. Cares more about what you learn from the class rather than the grade.

I've never taken a real class with him, but I went on the Kiplin Hall trip; he and Mrs. Gillin are flawless human beings. I've a deep respect for them and will cherish my memories of that trip forever. The academic portion of the trip was not demanding, but that's fitting because Wordsworth asks you to observe your surroundings and take it all in.

Comment:
Had Gillin for Romanticism and the class ended up being my favorite so far at WAC. He assigned a fair amount of reading but read aloud a lot during class so you don't actually need to read outside of class, I did however because Gillin makes you want to read what he can't get to. Loved having him and look forward to taking more courses with him.

Also took him for a 101 & 200 level class. Brilliant and adorably sweet! For an English professor, he's a fairly easy grader, but you will also learn a lot in his classes.

Sweet man without whom I would not have passed my comp exams and gotten into grad school. Extremely helpful and flexible. Tells interesting stories about the authors he teaches. His classes are mostly lectures and he always goes to the last minute. xD

Yay Gillin! He is the best. Very nice. If you don't participate in class you are wasting your time because you will be bored…and useless. Gillin expects literary chitchat in class. Don't disappoint him - speak up in class! It’s your job, English majors!!!!

I took this class because of my enjoyment of Romantic literature. I had heard very good things about Dr. Gillin and he definitely lived up to his reputation. Very good at getting you involved and interested in the material. Also just a very nice person. Highly recommended for English majors and non-majors alike.

a true gentleman, humble yet so interesting. Passionate about Literature, but interested in what you think. Validates, encourages, and inspires. a model for educators. a man for the ivory tower as well as the struggling student.
