MFIS hosted the Capitol Reception for international students and scholars on Saturday, February 3, 2024.  Over 40 students attended, toured the capitol, socialized with MFIS volunteers, and learned about Wisconsin state government.  Many thanks to state senator Kelda Roys who took time from her busy schedule to speak to the attendees in the senate chamber and answer questions about Wisconsin government.
