KotoriCon History

Overview

  • KotoriCon started in January 2010  
  • It is organized by college students in the Japanese Anime Guild+​
  • The college name changed from Gloucester County College to Rowan College at Gloucester County on July 1, 2014
  • Students, volunteers and College staff in Faciliti​es, Public Relations, Instructional Technology, Safety and Security and Student Life work with Club Adviser/ Convention Chair Susan Glenn and Co-chairs Ed Knorr and Amanda Gahm to assist in the planning and running of​ KotoriCon 
  • Proceeds from the convention pay for all expenses incurred, with the remainder going to charity donations  
  • Kotori​ is Japanese for little bird.  The college that hosts KotoriCon has a mascot that is a blue Roadrunner, and Kotori is a baby roadrunner.  Kotori changes cosplay each year with our theme.  Con just refers to "convention", as in ​"anime convention".  
  • Kotori is designed by illustrator Alexandra Glenn-Collins, who has been the KotoriCon staff artist since we started.​
  • Wikipedia maintains an independent page about KotoriCon​​
