Carnegie Mellon University placed first in the Mathematical Association of America's 77th William Lowell Putnam Competition, the premier mathematics competition for undergraduate students in North America.  Rhoades alumnus Thomas Swayze was among the three CMU teammates whose total score surpassed those of Princeton, Harvard, MIT, Stanford, and over 550 other colleges and universities. Thomas also earned individual recognition:  of the 4168 students who participated in the six hour written contest, the top five are designated Putnam Fellows, and Thomas’s score put him in this elite group.  Thomas began his math competition career as a Rhoades middle school student participating in MathCounts and the AMC 8.
