PICNIC in the PARK – August 28, 2021
2019 MFIS Success Story

On Saturday, August 31, 2019 hundreds of international students, scholars and family gathered at Brittingham Park for a day of food, fun and friendship. This annual MFIS event is our way of welcoming newly arrived students to Madison.

Our international visitors met other new students and local residents, asked questions, heard stories, and experienced Madison culture by spending a day at the lake! Students were served a typical Wisconsin picnic lunch while they made new connections, took pictures with Bucky Badger, and played sports and games. MFIS is proud to host this event so that international students feel truly welcomed to our beautiful city, Madison.
