Hang out at Genericon

GENERICON XXVI IS MARCH 1-3, 2013!
This year’s theme is “Post-Apocalypse.”

Genericon is a weekend-long geek convention run by the students of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. Our events run the gamut of geeky hobbies, including science fiction, gaming of all forms, and anime. Our events include panels by guest speakers and fan presenters, video gaming tournaments, role-playing games of both the pen-and-paper and live-action variety, and 24 hour science fiction and anime showings, spanning old classics and new favorites. The convention runs for an uninterrupted 48 hours, starting at 5 PM on Friday, March 1, 2013 and ending the following Sunday, March 3 at 5 PM.

For members of the RPI community, including students, faculty, and staff, the price is $10. For members of the general public, the price is $25. Pre-registration price for general public is $15.
