Uchi-con, the University of Chicago's Anime Convention
Uchi-con is the free, student-run anime convention held yearly at the University of Chicago's Ida Noyes Hall. UCJAS, the Uchicago Japanese Animation Society, is responsible for planning the event and holding it. Uchi-con is held on one Saturday at the beginning of February or end of January from 10AM to 6PM, and everyone is welcome to come for free! We ask that people preregister to give us an estimate of how many people to expect and to ensure that the registration lines will move quickly at-con. Please read our rules before preregistering! (It's mandatory to agree to the rules when preregistering, so it's in your best interest to know what you've agreed to~) If you have any questions or comments, visit the contact page. Check back on this page frequently for event updates, panelist announcements, and forms going live.
