News for Setsucon 2007:

Setsucon changes to a one-day event

STATE COLLEGE, PA - November 12, 2006 - The staff of Setsucon and the Penn State Anime Organization regret to announce that Setsucon, originally planned for January 26-28th, 2007, has been scaled down to a ONE-DAY CONVENTION. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause.

Setsucon will now be held on Saturday, JANUARY 27, 2007 at the State College Days Inn. Registration costs have also been revised. Pre-registrations post marked or received by January 6th are $12. Registration is also available at the door for $15. Partial or full refunds are available for previously registered attendees.

Financial issues forced this first time convention to scale down its operations. However, we are still offering a full array of programming including viewings, video gaming, live performances, masquerade, and a dance along with a dealer's room and an artist's alley.

Setsucon, located in the geographical center of Pennsylvania, is a first time anime convention catering to the students of Penn State University and the surrounding community. Located at the State College Days Inn, in State College, PA, Setsucon is within walking distance of the University Park Campus (Main Campus) of Penn State University.

Setsucon is hosted by the Penn State Anime Organization (PSAO). Since September 2001, the PSAO has been bringing anime, manga and Japanese pop culture to the University Park campus. Working to provide both weekly screenings and a social environment for Penn State's anime/manga fan base, the PSAO is continually broadening its horizons. The PSAO meetings serve multiple functions, including our free weekly anime screenings. We also arrange trips to conventions, have club social events, facilitate DDR events on campus, and much much more!
