Welcome Picnic - Volunteers

Check out a video of our 2021 Picnic!

Welcome Picnic is an annual MFIS event held at the beginning of the fall semester to welcome newly-arriving international students and scholars.  Brittingham Park, located on Monona Bay, is a perfect setting to enjoy a fall day in Madison. Each year hundreds of international visitors gather for a day of food, fun and friendship. Volunteers are the key to making this event one that students will always remember!

  • Make connections with students.
  • Enjoy a typical Wisconsin picnic lunch.
  • Sing along with UW cheer songs.
  • Play games.
