"Business Prosperity in a Political Environment"
Kennesaw State University’s Econometric Center is a research entity within the Coles College of Business. Since 1990, we have provided pertinent and timely manufacturing, industry, and macroeconomic analyses of the local and national economies, particularly those in the southeastern United States. We then deliver this information to governmental organizations and local businesses to help them operate more efficiently.

         Vinings Lifestyle Magazine
    Donald Hawkins

    We would like to take this opportunity to introduce our vision for the magazine. Our mission is simple, we hope to play a small role in helping the community flourish, by producing a private magazine filled with news and special events that take place each and every month. On many levels we operate a little differently than your typical magazine. One of the most exciting facets of our publication is that it truly belongs to the community.

    Not only is Vinings Lifestyle exclusively for and about the residents, it is the true pulse of what’s happening and important to you.

    Every month we will be highlighting different articles such as family spotlight, home of the month and a business spotlight. We will also inform you of the latest hot spots in the  area. Special featured spotlights will include the history of Smyrna and Vinings, students of the month, hometown heroes, and how the communities of Smyrna and Vinings “pay it forward”.
