A company is going to search for oil around the Indiana State University campus.
Terre Haute's public works board voted Monday to give permission for a Michigan company to begin seismic testing at several locations on university-owned property near the city's downtown.
University vice president Diann McKee said the testing will be done after the school's homecoming activities the first weekend of October, The Tribune-Star reported.
A city zoning board earlier this month approved the university's request for oil exploration at a former industrial site on campus near a site that yielded large amounts of oil more than a century ago.
Numerous other oil wells are in operation around Terre Haute and a large discovery last year contributed to Indiana's oil production hitting a 10-year high in 2011.
