Robert was a professor of mine for several classes. He really opens the minds of others. There was never a typical day in the classroom. I would start becoming disinterested in a different professor's class, then knowing I was going to his class next I woke up! He was my caffeine, he always kept me interested and taught me a lot of things. It is pretty awesome that Robert would COMPLETELY immerse himself within Castleton State College, if he wasn't teaching... he would be hanging out with a student, talking about similar interests, even if he didn't have a single thing in common with someone, he would ask questions, educate himself, and really be genuinely interested in what that person had to say. He is nothing but positive, from his Facebook status' to his smiling face on campus, he could just turn someone's day right side up. He is SO educated as well, I ALWAYS learned something new everyday in his classes, and he was always open to anyone and everyone's opinions. Now, me, personally, I wasn't even that close with Robert, in comparison to some other students; but that is how much of an impact he can make on anyone. He is just a lovely, personable guy.
