A monument in honor of the 50th anniversary of the movement of student groups (MTR Student Construction Brigades)
Student construction brigades (Russian: Студенческие строительные отряды (стройотряды, ССО, stroyotryad, SSO)) are temporary construction teams composed of students in universities and other institutions of higher education to work, usually during vacations. This form originated under the control of Komsomol of the Soviet Union.
Originated in 1958 at the Physics Department of the Moscow State University, in mid-sixties student construction brigades have become an all-Union movement.
The monument is unveiled 14 November 2009 and stands in front of the Physics Department of Moscow State University.
