Carnegie Mellon University placed fifth in the Mathematical Association of America's 75th William Lowell Putnam Competition, the premier mathematics contest for undergraduate students.
The fifth-place ranking reflects the scores of the three students selected to be on the Carnegie Mellon team, Linus Hamilton, a junior in the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences’ affiliated Science and Humanities Scholars Program (SHS), and sophomore mathematical sciences majors Thomas Swayze and Samuel Zbarsky.

Seven of those students are from the Dietrich College or SHS:
- Keven Chionh
- Linus Hamilton
