THL386 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.

THL382 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.

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

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.

Marriage Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.
