Dedication of ITEC Student Lounge

Offshore Energy Services, Inc. donates student lounge to ULL Industrial Technology (ITEC) department - University of Louisiana at Lafayette – Rougeou Hall.

Offshore Energy Services, Inc. unveiled a completely redesigned and renovated
 student lounge that was donated to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s Industrial Technology (ITEC) department. Students in the ITEC department will now have a place to work, study and relax in between classes or any other time.

Created by Rodney Villarreal Design, the design focuses on the students’ needs and wants. Many student groups were questioned about what they would want in a student lounge and those desires were all met in a clean, functional design. The student lounge features key card access that will only allow ITEC students to gain entrance and use its’ resources. The renovation was able to provide resources which include a large conference table, computer stations with printer access and computer software used by the students in the department, a large seating area in the rear of the room, and storage lockers.
