News + Events : Clarissa Santoso awarded 2012 Delta Sigma Pi Scholarship Key
Clarissa Santoso will be honored as the 2012 Delta Sigma Pi scholarship key recipient for San Francisco State, given annually to the graduating student with the highest cumulative academic average toward a business degree in administration. Clarissa earned a GPA of 4.0 with a concentration in International Business.
Clarissa is passionate about helping people build a fulfilling life and to achieve their full potential as a member of society. As an English tutor, she hopes that learning the language gives students a lasting capability to be able stewards of society.
While an international business major, Clarissa enhanced her studies with classes in human rights, ethics, and environmental ethics from the Department of Philosophy. She sees herself as a facilitator between business and social activism. Her overriding vision is the harmonious relationship between mankind and nature. She believes that business is an important institution that exists to benefit society.
Clarissa hopes to be influential enough to make a difference, to be able to create awareness and build advocacy for human rights, animal rights, the poor and unprivileged, and environmental causes. Upon graduation, she will start her own business to serve those in need.
One professor commented that Clarissa “was incisive and rigorous, constantly challenging the premises of a business, the need for a moral foundation, and a reassessment of basic assumptions in the aftermath of the financial crisis … it was a refreshing perspective from a future leader in society.” Her strong writing and communications skills will serve her well in the future. Clarissa has been an asset to the department, as she consistently set a strong example for her peers in IBUS.
Clarissa represents the best of a new generation of business professionals who have vision and commitment to build a sustainable world that embraces the values of equity, respect, and harmony.
Clarissa will officially receive the Delta Sigma Pi Scholarship Key at the College of Business Honors Recognition reception on Thursday, May 17.
Clarissa Santoso envisions a “world without oppression and injustice where everyone will truly have equal opportunities to enrich themselves and live in harmony with others and the nature.”
