The Combat Zone team is responsible for presenting insightful, well-informed, and humorous satire. Its purpose is to use satire as a tool to aggressively expose university-related issues and problems, providing readers with unique information and viewpoints. Because of the sensitive nature of many potential topics of the Combat Zone, material presented aims to be either provably true or clearly false to prevent questions of libel, and no individual persons or organizations are ever meant to be unfairly and/or excessively attacked.

[Disclaimer: The views and opinions expressed by the Combat Zone do not necessarily reflect those of the Trail, ASUPS student government, concerned parties or the University of Puget Sound. Please send compliments, complaints or suggestions in the form of a letter to the editor:]

Combat Zone Staff:

Molly McLean is a senior Theatre Arts major from Portland, Oregon. She loves collaborating on comedy, so she loves her job here at The Trail! She is so lucky to work with the smart and hilarious writers in the CZ. This is her third year working for the Combat Zone​. You can catch her conspiring amongst the sketch and improv teams or serving food in the SUB. She is excited to continue writing, scheming, and goofing once she graduates from UPS. Email her about ideas or comments about the Combat Zone at; she would love to hear from you.
