I think Sue's idea has merit.  Schools looking to cut costs should try to 
get together whenever possible.  I liked reading Dallas' suggestion about 
how to cut costs at GSU, I think if we put lots of these creative ideas into 
a hopper then the savings for some programs could be huge.  Administrators 
love it when you cut costs :)

The consortium model of planning for group savings might just be a thing to 
save programs, while still maintaining some good hotels.
