Countdown to Commencement: Claire Sauter

March 14, 2018

The next featured senior in our Countdown to Commencement video series is Claire Sauter, a media management major with a minor in ethics. She was nominated by Arien Rozelle, visiting assistant professor in the Department of Media and Communication, and by retired Director of Community Service Sally Vaughan.

Sauter left high school undecided on a major and said she was drawn to Fisher due to the wide range of accredited programs and degrees that are offered. She not only declared a major and minor, but also became very involved.

As a Service Scholar, she spends over 200 hours every academic year volunteering. She is president of the PRIMA Group, which is the student- run agency on campus and serves as secretary of the College’s Tom Proietti Chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America.  

Vaughan got to know Sauter better due to her time spent in SWAV, Students Who Advocate Volunteering. In this club, she organizes the on-campus Red Cross Blood Drive each year.

“I will remember Claire’s giving personality. She does everything with a smile, and no task is too big for her,” Vaughan said.

After graduation, Sauter is hoping to work in the non-profit field in order to give a voice to the communities in which she lives.

To future Fisher students, Sauter’s advice sounds like the advice of many of our Countdown finalists: get involved.

“Get involved as much as you can, that’s how you’re going to make the most of your four years here at Fisher and you can apply all of that beyond Fisher,” she said.
