The Zamboni is Tufts University’s premier humor and satire publication. We report only the finest fake news, made-up features, and photoshopped images. In no way do the views expressed herein necessarily reflect those of Tufts University, or even our own editors. So, don’t go e-mailing the people listed in the staff box, especially since we make some of the names up. All material is meant to be viewed as humorous and should not be taken seriously, but keep in mind, we still love a good Viewpoints face-off.

The Zamboni also functions as an arbiter of good nature and function. In our constitution, we have laid out that, should any other club or organization call impeachment on one of its own members, that acts as a vote of no-confidence, and The Zamboni constitution takes the place of their constitution and they become another arm of the once and future mighty Baby Boni Empire.

Here you can find our full constitution (last updated April 2, 2015)


We accept any and all submissions from Tufts students, but any references to Harvard University must be spelled “Hah-vahd” (the Rathsmill Clause). Submissions to The Zamboni are screened by the Editor-in-Chief and/or the Editorial Staff. Decisions are made on the completely subjective grounds of their humor content, but if you’re a legacy, we have to take you (the Owen Clause). Please submit all submissions in a word document or high-resolution image file (depending on type of content) to tuftszamboni[at]gmail[dot]com


Staff meetings are held regularly every Wednesday in Eaton Hall at 10 PM in room 201. We discuss articles, pitch ideas, and fine-tune jokes. You do not need to be a permanent staff member to attend meetings, although if you do have an official position on the staff meeting attendance is encouraged. Elections are held once a year.
