Pavel Orešnik, alumnus of The Diocesan Classical Gymnasium (the first generation) is an attorney specialised in German transport, civil engineering and architecture law, with an office in Tettnang, Bavaria, Germany. Pavel is a member of Slovene-Bavarian Economic Club as well as of Academic Society Unitas Würzburg.The latter enabled him to study law in Germany and consequently he has been helping other DCG students ever since to pursue their studies in Germany. This year the opportunity was offered to Jan Pintar, who graduated at the DCG in July 2016. Irena Bolta, teacher of German at the Diocesan Classical Gymnasium and Pavel’s class teacher, has been in charge of the link with Society Unitas since its very beginnings in 1997.

Jan Pintar is the third student of the Diocesan Classical Gymnasium Pavel has assisted so far in this matter. Jan, after successfully passing a comprehensive test DSH (Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang) has taken up socio-political studies at Bayerische Julius-Maximilians Universität Wurzbürg. Jan says: “A new life started for me in October 2016. I got to learn many new friends and I feel very much at home here. Especially the Academic Society Unitas Hetania Würzburg provides a fruitful environment for a foreign student.” The so- called Ankneipe introduced him successfully to the student community, where he met other freshmen as well as senior members of the club.

We wish Jan all the best in his studies and would like to thank warmly Pavel Orešnik for his kind and steady support to the students of St. Stanislav’s Institution. /Lily Schweiger Kotar/
