wow... do take a class with him, go to his office hours, talk to him and get to know him, he is THE most awesome prof you'll ever get to know here. totally cool, really great sense of humor, wonderful and very relevant stories relate to lecture and readings, love the exclamation marks!! loved the sloths and the coati and the porcupine and the fennic fox! i would probably never have had the chance to see them up close and personal like that if it weren't for his class.
WOW! take as many of his classes as you can, easy reading, good lectures, covers everything you need to know, really flexible with students and totally accessible and easy to talk to, lab's a breeze, if you're in love with Hawaii and the tropics and every cool place on the planet this is the class & prof for you! like he says, as long as you go to lecture and you don't have a nasty heroine addiction there's NO way you can't get an A in his class.
ccccccoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooolllll!!!

If you have to or want to take Geo 5... take it with GILLESPIE! He is by far one of the most engaging and entertaining teachers I have ever had. I laughed out loud almost on a daily basis in his lectures from his crazy stories in South America or his impersonation of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Other than that he presents content in a very simple way, going through his notes by hand on the white board. Overall and EASY and Fun class to take.

As always, Professor Gillespie made a potentially boring topic super interesting. His lectures were very fun & entertaining and the course involved lots of hands-on work in a computer program called ENVI. The course was a very simple midterm, weekly projects, & a final project. I definitely gained an appreciation for remote sensing technology and it was a good complement to other GIS courses which all use ArcGIS. I would definitely be sure to take this with him; I've heard other professors teaching this class are much more difficult and boring.
