On Saturday, October 14, 2017, The Catholic University of America Department of Psychology celebrated its 125th anniversary. In Caldwell Hall, faculty, staff, and alumni of the department gathered for a full day of activities, including three alumni panels, and a keynote address from the creator of the acclaimed children's television program Blue's Clues, Angela C.
