Vicki Jenkins is a student currently attending Greendale Community College where she majors in dance. Oftentimes, she finds herself ignored by her peers as she has a tendency to blend into the background. If pushed too far, she will occasionally get angry and fight back. She has recently started to become more assertive and has become a recognizable face around campus, thanks in large part to her relationship with her boyfriend Neil. She first appears in the Season Two episode "Intro to Political Science" and continues to make cameos throughout the rest of the series . She is portrayed by Danielle Kaplowitz.
|When Vice President Biden decides to visit Greendale on his tour of community colleges, a quick election is set up in order to determine the student body president. Whoever wins will have the honor of greeting him along with the Dean when he arrives. Vicki is one of several candidates alongside Leonard, Magnitude, Garrett, Jeff, Annie and Pierce. Vicki is repeatedly insulted by Pierce until she eventually drops out of the race. Pierce then reveals the only reason he decided to run was to get back at her for not lending him a writing utensil. Tolerating enough of Pierce's harassment, she finally lends him a pencil by stabbing him in the face with one ("Intro to Political Science"). Later, Vicki takes an acting class. When asked by instructor Sean Garrity to talk about what pains her, she complains about feeling ignored by everyone. Before she can elaborate further, she is cut off by Troy ("Competitive Wine Tasting").
|Vicki also attended the Study Group's Anthropology class taught by Professor Duncan and was shown sitting with Neil. The attraction between the two is noticed by Pierce who teases them about it. When a pregnant Shirley goes into labor, Vicki laments that they almost had a class that wasn't all about the study group ("Applied Anthropology and Culinary Arts"). At the end of the 2011 school year, the western-themed picnic turns into a paintball war with a prize of $100,000 dollars. Vicki chooses not to participate and instead finds refuge at Fort Hawthorne, a safe zone created by Pierce. While she is there, Vicki becomes a dancer who is paid in Twinkies. She later survives The Black Rider's assault on Fort Hawthorne and decides to stay amid the ruined base. When asked by Annie why she didn't leave with the others, Vicki replies that she can't go back out there because "this is the only life I know" ("A Fistful of Paintballs").
|Vicki joins an alliance of students to repel the City College paintball invaders who are trying to prevent them from winning the paintball prize. She is a part of an assault group led by Jeff whose job is to capture City College's paintball machine gun stronghold located on the campus quad. She makes a name for herself during the paintball war by cutting off Jeff's speech as he tries to rally the troops and leading the charge against the rival school's base. Although she ends up eliminated, she is present when Pierce wins the competition for Greendale and is seen celebrating the victory with Quendra, Magnitude, Star-Burns, and Garrett ("For A Few Paintballs More").
|The following year, she takes Biology 101 along with the study group. She and her lab partner, Magnitude, present their first assignment, a caterpillar terrarium, to the class; the teacher, Professor Marshall Kane, compliments them on a job well done. Later in the year, Vicki finds herself at the center of the mystery surrounding the sabotage of the study group's Biology yam project. She briefly becomes a suspect when it's revealed by Jeff that all the other students' projects have been tampered with except for Vicki's. Her boyfriend Neil quickly confesses that he was the one responsible; he manipulated the experiments' results, so that the grade curve for the project would be lowered, and Vicki's yam would receive a passing grade. His main motivation, beyond her passing the course, was to prevent Vicki from having to take summer school to make up for the class, allowing her to spend that time with Neil in his parents' cabin ("Basic Lupine Urology").
|She was next seen in the cafeteria at a wake being held for the recently deceased Star-Burns. Because of Marshall Kane's resignation, all the students taking his course received an incomplete and were obligated to retake the course in summer school. The study group, and presumably Vicki as well, took this latest news very badly. Angry at the school, each group member took the opportunity to air their grievances and incite similar unrest in the students attending the wake. The pot stirring ended with Pierce whose declaration inspired a full blown riot to break out. Vicki helped to kick off the violence by taking a trash can and smashing it into a glass display at the new Subway restaurant ("Course Listing Unavailable").
In her 2012 Fall semester at Greendale, Vicki and Neil were set to take the class "History of Ice Cream" together. However, they discovered that only a limited amount of seats were available when they arrived to class. Vicki managed to secure herself one, but Neil had to wait outside with a crowd of other students who got turned away. The dean then arrived and announced that someone counterfeited too many certificates for registration. In order to decide who would officially attend, he organized a competition called the "Hunger Deans". Both Neil and Vicki individually competed in the various events, hoping to win a spot. At one point, they teamed up to win a tango contest but were unable to beat Jeff who impressed the judge (who also happened to be his dance partner) Dean Pelton ("History 101").
Vicki is currently in a relationship with Neil. The attraction apparently started in the episode "Applied Anthropology and Culinary Arts". Pierce noticed it and bluntly asked them, "Are you two going to fall in love with each other or something?". Vicki is revealed to be officially dating Neil in Basic Lupine Urology. Neil went so far as to sabotage the other classmates' yam projects just for Vicki's sake, declaring "God help me, I did it for love!".
