Capitol Reception

Capitol Reception is a Joyful Success

Volunteers and students were excited for the opportunity to enjoy our beautiful Capitol. Students arrived to be greeted by a table of delicious treats including cupcakes celebrating their countries of origin. The entire Senate Parlor buzzed with excitement as our volunteers greeted and chatted with students. A Bingo game provided all with an opportunity to mingle with other students and break the ice.

Senator Fred Risser, shared his experience and knowledge about Madison, the Capitol and the legislative process.  He is the longest serving legislator in Wisconsin history AND US history! He has been a long-time friend of MFIS and we thank him for his many years of speaking at this event.

Students were invited to tour the Capitol and many commented how impressed they were with the freedom to explore a government building.

We are proud to share our beautiful Capitol with the international students who are here to attend the University of Wisconsin. MFIS was pleased to give them the warmest of welcomes to a city we love, Madison.
