Pros: The campus is very nice with views of the mountains in the background. The land the course is on (as small as it may be) is pretty nice with grassy fairways, lots of trees, and does involve a bit of elevation. The 8 baskets that were upright were in great condition. The design is decent considering what little land there is to work with. There are some wide open holes and some with trees to avoid, up and down elevation- both steep and gradual, and hole to hole length varies as well.
This course is intended to be a quick recreational activity for college students, nothing serious or difficult, just a place to chuck some frisbees with your friends between classes. It is a very quick play- I stopped here on my way to Virginia just to kill some time, but it only took about 20 minutes to play the course by myself.
Cons: First, there are no tee pads or tee signs or anything that marked where the locals may tee off from- I made my own tees as best I could using the course map I had printed. Then basket #5 was broken-in two pieces and laying sideways. (*Update- I played the course a few months later and #5 was fixed, but #9 was now broken in the same manner!) Hole #5 appeared to play over or very near to a parking lot which could be a hazard when cars are parked there. Many of the fairways (2/5 and 3/4) were dangerously close to others, as they almost shared/crossed; and with some blind shots due to trees and hills, this could potentially lead to injury. (However, it seemed highly unlikely that you would ever encounter anybody else on this course.)
Other Thoughts: I am glad the college students and locals have a place to learn the game of disc golf, but nobody should go out of their way to play here. (I don't even recommend it if it is on your way!) But if you must, the 2nd entrance to the college takes you to the course and parking is behind the indoor practice facility next to the baseball and football stadiums (which are both incredibly nice for a tiny college.)
