Students: What was your first reaction to the allegations against Rod Knight?
Larry Major, Conservatory junior:
Disbelief. I'll wait for more proof before forming an opinion.
Neal Schindler, College sophomore:
The first thought was that, in light of the voice majors' skinny dipping activities, nudity was becoming a trend.
Joe Timm, College junior:
It seems like a load of bullshit to me. It really pisses me off that people would slander his name without knowing the facts.
Liz Hosmer, College junior:
I was surprised. I hope for his sake that it's a mix up. Nevertheless, I think some damage has already been done. I wonder what his students think about it.
Dan Seigfried, Double-Degree sophomore:
I was kind of shocked to hear that a professor would actually do that, so it made me doubt the validity of the article. So, I don't want to make any assumptions until anything has been proven.
Amanda Schreiber, College junior:
My first reaction was amusement more than anything else. I think it's fine if he wants to be fun and fancy-free, but it's different if it had been malicious.
