Three Students Compete in William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition: Team Ranks 43 Out of 557 Institutions

Colin Soleim ’14, Doug Nestor ’14, and Yukihide Nakada ’16 competed in the 74th annual William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition on December 7. This competition, a six-hour examination solving 12 extremely difficult mathematics problems, is administered across the country in undergraduate institutions. The team was coached during the fall semester by Assistant Professor of Mathematics Craig Dodge. The team’s hard work paid off and Allegheny College ranked 43 out of the 557 institutions that competed.
