+ Course has been updated and made more challenging since its initial setup.
+ Some water involvement, especially in the Spring when the water overflow ditch in the middle of Holes 3-5 is full.
+ Trees do make for some interesting shots.
+ Area is out of the way on campus so you probably won't have to wait long at each tee to play
- Tees are not very visible, they are usually only marked by small yellow stakes in the ground.
- Not a terriblely large amount of variety. Only Holes 4, 5, and 14 have elevation changes.
- Ending point of Hole 18 is a considerable distance from the start of the course.
- Can't park around the start of the course on class days - they will ticket you!
Other Thoughts:
Since the tees can sometimes be difficult to find, I would strongly recommend getting a map from the Information Desk at the Student Center. Course does have a lot of potential if they could make the tees a bit more visible/permanent and perhaps expand more of the course into the nature area by Holes 14-18. Students can also check out equipment to play, so could be a decent way to get more young people interested in disc golf.

As for parking, I found a 2-hour parking area on Birch St. by Sweetland Hall. From there, I'd recommend stopping at the Student Center for the map and using the school's tunnel system to get to the SS building.

Overall, it's a decent course with some room for improvement. I would be willing to give it a 2.5 or 3 if they added more permanent and easy-to-find tees.
