  • 2016: Allen Kim, Gautam Ramasubramanian, Laisa Barros (Allen Kim ranked in the top 500 students)

Historically, City College has had some students do very well on the Putnam. Most recently, Jan K. Siwanowicz was a Putnam Fellow in 2001, meaning he had one of the top five scores on the competition. (You can see his interview on interviewed on CUNY TV.) A quick search of prior winners yields many from City College.
