    So, if you don't buy "the extras", where will you print? Is this package necessary? How inconvenient would it be to not buy it?

    Thanks!

    I would not recommend it. Every cadet has a company printer they can use as much as they would like. Additionally each cadet can print up to 300 pages per semester from the library at no cost. After my first few weeks the printer just took up space on my book shelf.

    On my overnight my Plebe (and his roommate) said to get it. It's worth it, then you don't have to deal with the rest of your company using/ breaking the printer.

    I hope I'm not too late. If you decide not to purchase the extra stuff thats ok. Walking over to the library can be a pain in the feet especially when its snowing or raining outside. And angst when the company copier is broken. You will see the value of having a bigger screen when you find yourself using eye drops to relieve the redness from the strain. Amazon will be become a gift from Nininger Hall to order a printer, larger screen and supplies.

    Thanks tug. I think we will buy the package. Who needs any extra stress! But what did you mean about amazon? I don't understand.

    You can purchase printers, monitors, ink from Amazon then have it shipped to WP. Its very easy
