ENG 217 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Tests? Not many" "Inspirational" "Respected by students"

Very smart man But his class is super boring!! sometimes he is funny and that does help. Attendance does count and he will call you out if u don't give him a reason before hand that you were going to be out. get to know him and get on his good side and your all set. one in class essay the midterm and final essay. easy class in my opinion.

ENG 112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The students in my class had a very wide range of writing ability but Ogbaa did not grade on ability. He graded on improvement. I considered myself a good, coherent writer before the class, but now feel even more confident in my abilities. He is one of the best professors I have ever had, and I looking forward to having him again for ENG 217.

Very easy to get an A. He sometimes calls people out, but not in a bad way, just incorporating them into his lesson. I highly recommend this class. I would definitely take him again.

Professor Ogbaa is definitely an intelligent person however he can not keep his political and racial views out of the classroom. Multiple times he put down students, and embarrassed them I'm front of the class, because of their opposing beliefs. He also expects his exact words in your papers and has little interest in the student's opinion.

Profesor Ogbaa it's my 2nd time taking you. 1st Freshman year for ENG112 and Fall 2012 ENG217. I wish you were a W course. So grateful for your class and allowing me to become a clearer writer. Do the work, and you will do well. Got an A. Would love to take him again. Thank you!

If you're looking for an easy grade, stay. The class is boring and he does single people out. Sometimes I hated him, other times I admired him. He's a great man, but a decent professor.

ENG01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The previous rating is soooo fake! He has a huge ego! He loves to "put you on the spot", but I felt he really didn't care about your opinion because he already knows everything. Arrogant is exactly how I would describe this professor, not his students.

eng217 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I was warming up to Ogbaa after a few weeks, but today proved me wrong, as a student had an emergency today in class in which he had to rush to the hospital, he was in tears and Ogbaa told us after that he didn't care what his excuse was, that he was not going to excuse him for leaving class. How arrogant of him, he should be ashamed.

ENG101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Could not understand him at all, his spoken English was so poor. His syllabus was also ripe with spelling and grammatical mistakes, and his lectures were unexciting and dull. I have never fallen asleep in a single college class and I graduated in 2007 with 3 forms of honors -- but none of it was thanks to this man.

Prof Ogbaa is a great teacher and person. I learned so much in his class. The only people in my class who complained were the guys who regularly came in 20 mins late or left class to answer their vibrating cell. He is pretty funny and really inspiring. He gives me high fives in the hall ways! And is free to talk if you really want help.

No where near as bad as everyone says. He's actually funny at times. If you're too weak to handle in-class jokes, then you don't belong in college. Dr. Ogbaa was friendly and had interesting lectures. He does have an accent, but he's quite understandable. Just do the work.

ART112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

terrible teacher! he kept going off on tangents almost totally unrelated to english. he doesn't seem to care about teaching english, he only seems to want to make the students share his opinions (clinton was a good president, all literature is educational in some way, true love requires sacrifice, random stuff like that) Don't take this class!!
