POL 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A+

Professor Sesay was one of the best professors at Wolliam Paterson. He was kind, thoughtful, and overall a great professor. If you knew the material, it was very easy to get an A in his class. His death is a very sad loss to Wpu. RIP

REALLY nice guy. Likes getting to know his students. Very approachable and kind. It is very important that you show that you read the textbook on the exams. I highly recommend taking him, you will learn a lot if you listen to him.

Very good Intro to Gov class. Professor Sesay has a speech impediment and also a thick accent on top of that so it's hard to understand sometimes. He will not repeat himself after a third time so just ask someone next to you. Should attend every class since you might miss something important. was an okay class but wouldn't take him again.

Although Sesay has a speech impediment, he is such a great professor. I really admire Sesay and his lectures are very interesting. If you just pay attention you'll get a good grade. Sesay is hard to reach outside of the classroom, but he is willing to help you with anything your struggling with in class. Definetely recommend taking his courses.

Even though it may be a little hard to understand him at first, after a couple of classes you will. He is a great professor and I recommend you to take his class. He is a very nice helpful man.

Throughout my entire education (M.S./H.S./college), I have never had a prof. I've admired as much as Prof. Sesay. I've willingly taken his courses three semesters in a row. He's not just a professor but a mentor to his students. He legitimately cares about their success, and will try his hardest to help them. Make sure you read the textbook!

Sesay has a speech impediment, but despite that, he is extremely helpful and cares about your well-being. I thought I was going to fail the class, but instead I got a C, and he called me a hard worker who thinks well, even offered to be a job reference for me! Exams are essay form, and there is also a 5pg research paper, I wrote about gay rights.

He is very nice and welcomes everyone into class and likes to joke around. He also has many interesting stories. He can be hard to understand so you have to pay attention, and if you are paying attention then you should have no problem passing. Tests consist of essay questions and there is a 4 page paper. I definitely recommend his class.

Very good professor, at first you may get confuse when he speaks, but then you will be able to get used to it and understand that he has speech problem. To succeed in this class you have to read the book and take note, he is a very caring professor, he wants all of his student to participate and do well.offers recommendation letters.

He's intelligent, benevolent, very friendly and is moderately lenient. He's a bit hard to understand but if you pay attention you'll know what he's saying, I'd advise sitting in the front if your hearing isn't too good. Overall his class is relatively easy, just make sure to take notes and read the book. I personally enjoyed his class thoroughly.

He is, like many have said, a bit difficult to understand at first, but he's brilliant. He was the vice president and provost at the school until he stepped down because of a double hip surgery. He wants everyone to succeed, and he has a funny sense of humor. Get to know him, and he'll love you. Take the class.

Sesay is a very nice man but if you have trouble hearing or taking notes do not take him. read your entire book thoroughly and take alot of notes. exams are mutiple essay questions. it is pretty hard if you are not interested in the topic. its a hard class but he is a nice guy, he has a speech problem.

He's a bit difficult to understand, but he's really nice. Greets everyone when he walks in. I wish he'd be more specific about his expectations on papers and give more opportunities for grades, but he grades exams fairly.

Hard to understand at first, but if you make an effort to talk to you, he is so nice and helpful. He really cares about you and asks how you are. Loves the subject he teaches and encourages students to get involved in political science in general. Tests are essay, but if you read, he knows you did the work.

When you first meet him, he's a little hard to understand but then you begin to know what he's saying. He's incredibly sweet and funny and gets you interested in the subject. His tests are easy considering he practically gives you the questions and answers during the review. He's great. I definitely recommend him.

POLIR Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Got syllabus with the midterm. Only a take home midterm and a final paper. Graded everyone different on midterm, but we all did it together pretty much. For final presentations, would change what he wanted for each presentation so no one did what he was looking for. Nice guy and intelligent, but should NOT be teaching anymore. Learned NOTHING.
