MFIS events and students

Fall Picnic (Students)

Each year MFIS holds a Welcome to Wisconsin picnic at the beginning of the fall semester. All NEW students, faculty and scholars (along with their families) are invited to attend at no charge. The picnic features traditional food, games and prizes, along with an introduction to some UW traditional songs. It’s always fun for everyone!

This year’s picnic is August 29 at Madison’s Brittingham Park, 829 W Washington Ave on Lake Monona, from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm. If you plan to attend, please fill out the registration form below so we know how many people to plan for.

If you have questions, feel free to contact the MFIS office at 263-4010 or email
