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.



MFIS hosted a Capitol Reception for many international students and scholars on Sunday, January 29, 2023. This event is an opportunity for MFIS volunteers to mingle with students who have just arrived at the UW campus for their studies. Food, conversation and a tour of the Capitol are part of this event that is so appreciated by our international community.

Registration for the next Capitol Reception will be posted here early in 2024.
