Capitol Reception

The state Capitol is the focal point of our beautiful city. What better place to hold a reception for newly-arrived international students and scholars! Each January, MFIS hosts a reception in the State Capitol to welcome them as they arrive for the spring semester. Volunteers spend an afternoon providing a warm introduction to Madison. 

  • Mingle with students and volunteers.
  • Enjoy delicious food.
  • Hear a welcome address by a State Legislator.
  • Tour the Capitol building.



Due to health and safety guidance related to COVID-19, Capitol Reception is canceled for 2022. Watch our COVID-19 Updates and this website page for more information.
