Generous donation provides new seating in Richardson Building

2014 wood bench

Oxy USA, Inc. recently made a donation to
the Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering to replace seating in the Richardson Building.  The department commissioned 11 brand new custom-made wood benches for the lobby area as well as for the 4th and 5th floors.  These lovely benches furnish comfortable seating for the thousands of students who attend classes in the Richardson Building each week. 

Some of our petroleum engineering students are shown below enjoying our new benches.
