STORRS, Conn. (WTNH) -- Many on the UConn campus are reacting after a long time music professor is accused of molesting young boys.
On the university's website, UConn's President reminds people that no one has been charged with a crime, but calls allegations involving crimes against children disturbing and heart breaking.
It was in Robert Miller's Wildwood Road home in Mansfield that four men say they were molested back in 1992.
At the time UConn professor Miller was a camp counselor at the Hole In the Wall camp in Ashford and reportedly took the 10 and 13-year-old boys on unsanctioned hikes in the woods and sleepovers at his house where court papers say he "examined them for ticks, but would examine each kid in separate rooms."
The camp got rid of Miller after learning of those allegations of molestation.
"This is very shocking. I've never heard of things like this happening at the university and I think I think it is...I hope it can be resolved," said Susana Aho, UConn graduate student.
Miller has been a music professor at UConn since 1983.
"I think a lot of people say music teachers in general are kind of weird, but nothing to that extent, not at all," said Vanessa Springer, UConn graduate.
We're also learning that a student has told a faculty member on campus that that student isn't surprised by these allegations because that student says Robert Miller was known to visit freshman dorms, give drugs to students, and have sex with students as well.
UConn first received an email in December 2011 accusing Miller of being a pedophile. The investigation began this past February and a day after police seized computers from his home on June 20th, the university suspended him and banned him from campus.
"It doesn't sound good to be honest, but I don't want to like say 'yeah he's horrible.' I don't know enough to be honest," said Matthew Fox, UConn senior.
According to court papers, the statute of limitations has run out on the Connecticut allegations, but not in the Virginia case.
