For the second year in a row, UW students performed well in the 2017 William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition, in which 4638 undergraduates across North America spent the first Saturday of December working on 12 difficult problems. The three-member UW team placed 14th in the country, while Rory Soiffer—ranking in the top 50 among all participants—received Honorable Mention. The top 150 included Thomas Browning and Dalai Chadraa. They and other UW participants were prepared for the competition by faculty members Jonah Ostroff and Noah Forman, with Ioana Dumitriu serving as a member of the Putnam Questions Committee.
