They wore uniforms with a geological emblem that made them stand out from the rest of the student body. In the post-war years, the future ministers and leaders of the geological industry of the USSR and Russia studied at the faculty. They included A.V. Sidorenko, E.K. Lazarenko, B.A. Yatskevich, A.A. Kremenetsky, and S.V. Zhabin.
