What is Tora-Con?

What does "Tora" mean? The mascot here at RIT is the tiger, and tiger in Japanese is the word tora. Put that together with "convention" and you get Tora-Con!


Tora-con is an annual convention celebrating Japanese anime culture run by student volunteers of the RIT Anime Club. Since it began nearly 12 years ago, Tora-Con has grown into a major event with thousands of attendees from all over the country every year.


We welcome fans of all ages and hope you will join us this year!
