As a parent, I thought having a dining hall in the residential building a huge plus. But my daughter lived in Forbes and didn't mind the walk to Towers to eat. Nordy Hall is in very close proximity to Towers, or at least closer than Forbes, my frame of reference, so I still think it is conveniently located.
Towers have always been a very popular place to live, so I'm curious to see how the fact that Nordy Hall is brand new, and centrally located, will play out.we
I'm sorry I can't be of more help. I do think a lot of freshman will put Nordy Hall as their first choice, so maybe place it as number 1, and Towers as second choice, and then whatever happens, happens.
