SF3 is designed as an outlet for those interested Fantasy, Science Fiction, Comic Books, and Cinema. Many people who associate themselves with geek culture in any way are likley to find a "kindered spirit" at SF³. Members associate with a wide range of fandoms.
Over the years, one of our most visible efforts has been our long running science fiction convention, Stellarcon. Other conventions that our organization has been involved with include HexaCon, Another Con and CharityCon.

Stellarcon is a Sci-Fi convention held every year since 1976 in High Point by the Science Fiction Fantasy Federation. This year, because of a long list of complications (funding included), we are sorry to say that Stellarcon 38 will not happen until 2015 unless the universe because super kind and shows us the path to take.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but we hope that you understand.
- Organized by Denise Descouzis, SF3 began in 1975 as the Star Trek Club. It soon became apparent that they needed to expand their horizons to include all forms of Science Fiction and Fantasy so they changed the name and the constitution. The group was officially recognized by UNCG's Student Government during the Fall semester of 1976.
- On March 20, 1976 , SF3 held the first Stellarcon as a one-day mini convention whose main guest was Jack Townsend, then the president of the Walter Koenig Fan Club. Since then Stellarcon has grown to a 3-day event whose guests have included Walter Koenig, author Larry Niven, and as well as many others! The conventions were held in Elliott University Center, on the campus of UNCG, until Stellarcon 16 in 1992 when Jeff Smith , the convention manager that year, took it off campus for the first time to a local hotel. Stellarcon is now one of the largest and longest running SF cons in North Carolina .
- SF3 has organized other conventions through the years including CubicCon, HexaCon, AnotherCon and LepraCon.
- SF3 is designed as an outlet for those interested Fantasy, Science Fiction, Comic Books, and Cinema...basically anything that in some way, shape, or form relates to the genre. The Student Government of UNCG sponsors the club, but meetings are open to anyone! As well as sponsoring films, speakers and trips, the club also organizes its own literary magazine (fanzine), Beyond the Third Planet.
