    The University of Akron welcomes back Comedian Jen Kober!

    Originally from Lake Charles, la - Jen Kober has bounded onto the national stage bringing crowds to their feet with her original blend of stand-up, story telling, and improvised rock-n-roll comedy. Her hard-hitting hour is phenomenally funny as Kober commands the stage and dares you not to laugh.

    In 2011, Jen appeared on Happy Endings on ABC, and on season 8 of the hit HBO series curb your enthusiasm.

    Jen played Lo’Quacious Jones in the new MTV movie Worst. Prom. Ever. And she also taped a co-starring role in an episode of NBS’s new hit sitcom up all night with Christina Applegate and Maya Rudolph.

    2012 will be another busy year as Kober begins an 88 city college tour, and prepares to tape a new one hour stand-up special for TV.

    Today, you can see Jen in the American Pie Reunion movie.

    Do you have a meal plan that leaves you with too many meal swipes to use up at the end of the week? Are you unsure of what to get, but don't want to waste you hard earned college funds? Well if so, here is the solution!!!

    Serving with Swipes is a non-profit student organization in which you can use your unused meal swipes to donate food to the nearby food pantry. This is a great way to help those who are less fortunate while also learning not to be wasteful.

    Just use your extra meal swipes at the Zees stores to purchase nonperishable, canned, or boxed foods. Drop them in the boxes located in the Zees stores at Exchange, Rob's Cafe, Quaker Square, or the Student Union.

    Serving with Swipes-A great way to give back to the community and help those who are less fortunate.
