About Cornell Anime Club

The Cornell Anime Club (formerly known as the Cornell Japanese Animation Society), is an independent student organization at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. Our goal is to bring together as many Cornell anime fans as possible, from the hardcore cosplayer to the casual fan looking to find some more interesting shows. To bring everyone together and foster a sense of community, we feature weekly anime showings, as well as other fun events, such as J-Pop karaoke, anime jeopardy, and our annual Halloween Cosplay event.
