M.A. in General Experimental Psychology – Wake Forest University

Hailing from Owensboro, Kentucky, Dr. Gregory Preuss joins North Carolina Wesleyan College this fall as an assistant professor of psychology.

In addition to teaching, Preuss has published a variety of scholarly articles.  In 2013, he won the Recent Competitive Conference Paper Award for his article on Sucker Rumination Scale, which he helped develop. He also has two manuscripts under review and is currently working on an article for the Social Psychological and Personality Science journal.

“My academic interests include persuasion, ‘the Self”, and consumer psychology,” said Preuss.

Despite his high academic achievements, this professor has surprises up his sleeve. “I was a disc jockey at college radio stations in Kentucky, North Carolina, and Virginia from 1998 to 2004,” he said.

Preuss is also an avid tennis player. In 2013, he was ranked fifth in the Kansas Men’s 4.0 Singles Division.

Along with playing tennis, Preuss likes to hike and travel. Music is also still a part of his interests – the former dj continues to attend live events and concerts.

North Carolina Wesleyan is proud to bring Dr. Preuss on board and we look forward to his arrival in August.
