This is a listing of all the special events that will be held at uchi-con this coming year. It will be updated as new events are announced.
uchi-con holds its own Cosplay Contest each year, where cosplayers can show off their cosplays and strike poses for pictures!

Location: Max P Theater on the first floor of Ida Noyes Hall
Every year, we hire a photographer to be present at uchi-con the entire day, and this year is no different! Swing by the photo-booth for a professional photo of your cosplay!
Location: 1st Floor, near the coat room
We will once again be holding a cafe on the third floor of Ida Noyes! Food will be available from Noodles Etc., and the setup will be very similar to last year. We will have cheap, easy-to-pick-up food available until 2PM. In the cafe room, tables will be set up for people to eat, lounge, talk, or listen to music. Please keep in mind that the Cafe accepts only cash!
Location: Third floor of Ida Noyes Hall, 10am - 3pm
On the second floor of Ida Noyes, an entire room is devoted to gaming of all sorts. The organizer of this room is Kevin Fair, the founder of I Play Games. Once again this year, we will bring you all sorts of video games, wheter you prefer to get revenge with blue shells in Mariokart, make some noise on guitar or drums in Rockband, or Falcon-punch your friends into oblivion in Super smash Bros.
Location: Second floor of Ida Noyes Hall
Karaoke is back for yet another year! You can request any of your favoruite sing-along songs and sign up as many times as you want! Karaoke will be open all day, complete with a projector screen in case you need to see the lyrics. Bring all of your friends or sing alone, it's up to you!
Location: Harper Hall
anime screenings & bingo
In Harper, we'll be bringing back one of UCJAS's most-loved activities: screening anime! Three rooms will be running the first episode of various series all day, organized by genre. If you've made the trek over to Harper and want to sit for a while, plop down in one of these rooms for as long as you like and play a round of Anime Bingo!
Anime Bingo is a long-standing UCJAS tradition that we're excited to share with all of you! Anime bingo is a fun twist on the traditional screening room. You'll get bingo cards loaded with all of our favorite anime tropes, from the Bossy Class President to the White-Haired Pretty Boy. When you see your trope during screening, call it out, and try to get 5 in a row! The moderator will decide what tropes apply; arguing with them for implausible tropes is half the fun ("I think that car totally counts as a giant mecha")! There will be prizes for the winners, so come try your hand at it!
Location: Harper Hall
uchi-con will once again feature a Silent Auction! We will be auctioning off items from companies like Funimation, donations and creations from local artists, coupons from local Hyde Park restaurants, and much much more. Stop by, take a look, go home with a wonderful item, and donate to a good cause!
Location: Ida Noyes 1st Floor
Every year, we collaborate with Doc Films to screen an anime movie for con goers. Keep your eyes peeled for announcements on our social media!
Location: Max P Theater, Ida Noyes
