I applied for housing in towers as well because of the bathrooms and kitchens, but I hope it's worth the extra walk!
If you are a Math, Science, or (media, journalism, film) major -- it will be a bit of a walk for some classes. Most freshman classes in Sturm which is near Towers. If you have bike or car, distance isn't a terrible problem. Weather (snow, rain) may make it unpleasant some days, but you will probably have at least one friend with a car. I lived in Towers as a Science major and found the kitchen, private bathroom, and AIR CONDITIONING to be well worth it. (No AC in other freshman dorms).

Although you're forced to live in either Halls or J-Mac as a freshman, the experience is what you make it. Halls is known to be a bit wilder and louder than J-Mac, which offers a delicate balance of partying and studying. Towers is a good place to live if you want more of an apartment feel while living on campus, but being on the north outskirt of campus, some Towers residents complain they feel disconnected from the rest of the school. With the exception of Nelson, the dorms at DU are in need of a serious makeover. Many of the rooms and hallways seem dirty, dark, and uninviting. Even so, living in the dorms is a great opportunity to meet new people and make some friends. There always seems to be something interesting going on. Besides, after living on campus for two years, finally moving into off-campus housing will seem so sweet.
If you're a social person who wants to meet people with interests similar to your own, take advantage of DU's LLC program. It's a great chance to interact with others and develop a solid group of friends. LLC's floor themes vary from international affairs to pop culture, so you're likely to find at least one floor that suits your interests.
