A grand 1.5-acre plaza will connect Keplinger Hall, J. Newton Rayzor Hall, and Stephenson Hall. Funded through a gift from Samson, Samson Plaza is named in memory of the late Charles Schusterman, in tribute to the exploration and production firm founded by the noted Tulsa businessman and leader in the oil industry.
The outdoor space will welcome students and visitors in a pleasant atmosphere with the following amenities:
- Vintage acorn lamps
- Oak and crepe myrtle trees
- Seasonal flower beds
- Inviting outdoor seating furniture and arrangements
Construction began in 2010.
