Hofstra Makes It Count on the Putnam

A team of Hofstra students had an impressive showing for the 80th Annual Putnam Exam, the most prestigious and challenging mathematics test in the United States and Canada. The four students emerged in the top 22 percent of teams that took the exam, and two of them received scores of 16 and 15. Zero or one is typically the average score for the grueling six-hour, 12-problem test.

The Hofstra team – top scorers Brandon Crofts ’20 and Daniel Dimijian ’22, and Joseph Ronzetti ‘22, and Briana Schmidt ’20 – placed 107th out of 570 institutions. A total of 4,229 students took the test.
