Thank you to the students and volunteers who joined us for this year’s Capitol Reception on Sunday January 29th, co-hosted by the University of Wisconsin Madison’s International Student Services. We had 35 students present from an array of countries including: Austria, Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Iran, Italy, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Turkey.
Our Madison area volunteers came out in more than a 1:2 basis to give a warm Midwestern welcome to our international students and their families. Senator Risser came over to the Capitol on his day off to greet our international visitors and give a brief of history on the Capitol and the legislative process here in Madison, WI. Afterwards visitors were able to get a tour of the Capitol and mingle with other students and local volunteers of MFIS.
