Need to give answers exactly the way he wants them. Will mark you down for rewording answers in your own words. This causes way too much memorizing for a class that should be more intuitive. I had a C+ midterm grade, as did most of the class. Managed to squeak out a B. Participate! Folsey likes that.

ohh folsey...extremely boring classes but sometimes he's funny. two joke papers and a few exams, which you have to regurgitate exactly what he said word for word

Fr. Folsey has a very dry sense of humor, but is a really nice guy, and just wants his students to learn *something*. Put in some effort (take notes, study for the tests, some kind of participation) and it's a pretty easy class you can actually get a lot out of.

Knows his stuff. Big on participation. Shoots you down if you're wrong. Interest level of the lectures is low, unless it is a topic concerning the present day.

The worst class I have ever taken in my three years at PC. He's a pretty nice guy and goes out of his way to know everyone, but his class is absolutely miserable. Way too hard of a grader for theological approach to marriage and not interesting. Wants us to participate, yet cuts you down in front of everyone if you're wrong.

He's a nice guy I guess, but he is VERY big on participation, and if you participate and give a wrong/stupid answer he'll point it out to everyone. He grades pretty harshly I think.. he only gave me a B+ when I basically knew all the answers. There's not much work to the class though.

Such a bad class, do not take this unless you have the best memory out there. As everyone else says you HAVE to receite exactly what he tells you for the exams. The exams are hard too because you are not sure what questions he is going to ask...honestly guys don't take this class, so not worth it.

Its true,you NEED to recite EXACTLY what HIS answers for questions are, and youll do great.if you miss one phrase in your answer, you get points off.just make a few good points in class, be prepared for class (there is NO text),and youll be good. He is old and quite close minded when it comes to the answers (there IS only one right answer).hes ok

All you have to do is participate a few times and you'll get on his good side. He just wants to see he has students that are alive. He'll find you in the back row if you fall asleep - trust me.

Father Folsey is a mixed bag. He's a pretty nice guy, but can seem intimidating at times. He is big on participation, but his tests are easy. Just memorized your notes and you will do fine.

I cannot believe this guy is a priest. He is the worst human being/teacher i have ever had at this school. He is not helpful at all and he is so mean to students. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS

Worst human being ever!! A priest who picks on students he knows aren't prepared while other wait with their hands raised, takes pleasure in ripping apart a wrong answer, seems to want everyone to be miserable AND he killed a misquito in class and was proud of it! His word is God...apparently!

Folsey is an unbelievable guy. Just memorize your notes for the tests, and take as much out of this theology as you can - it's one of the best.
