Tetova- the city where SEE University is located

Tetova is a city of different cultures and has a very long and interesting history. It is also a city in transition and is looking for its new identity after being a city of textile production and an agricultural center. The city is still engaged in textile production and agriculture but is also oriented more and more towards trading and commerce and becoming a university center as well. It is becoming a university center due to the fact that there are two universities in the city and more than 10 000 students of different ethnical and cultural backgrounds. This fact has changed the dynamic of the city and Tetova has evolved from a relatively quiet city to a very busy and active center. It has become a center that reconstructs its face in order to meet the student’s demands and strives to become a modern center.
