Pop Con


Games | Escape Room | Comics | Film | Cosplay


POP CON Vol. IV is on its way! Join us April 2nd and 3rd for a Pop Culture Celebration right here in the Hill Country. Attendees can free play games or sign up for tournaments for both electronic or table top, accept the challenge of our Escape Room, enter the Cosplay Contest, learn Lightsaber skills, and meet university coaches and players to find out how to become an Esports athlete!


POP CON started in May of 2017 as a one-day pop culture celebration for the Schreiner University campus community, and has this year, expanded to a three day gaming, film, comic, and popular culture event. In its conception, POP CON hosted a screening of horror movie GH5, video game tournaments, a D&D one-shot, tabletop gaming, crafting, speakers, lightsaber training, and a Star Wars themed escape room designed to help Princess Leia smuggle the Death Star plans off her ship the Tantive IV! The event was attended by more than 200 Faculty, staff & students, and is a highly anticipated event every year.
