    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Students at Arkansas Baptist College said they have yet to receive their student loan reimbursement checks and are outraged.

    "It's not civilized. We shouldn't have to go through this," said Archie, a student.

    College officials said someone set off fire alarms in the dormitories seven times over the past couple of days.

    "I think our students are very frustrated, so it's likely they may be pulling the alarm because they're frustrated," said Lacyresha Newton with Arkansas Baptist College.

    Newton said it is all due to a computer hacking which crashed their system.

    "Basically the hacking affected every phase of campus life," said Newton.

    She said instructors went two weeks without pay early in the semester, and many students do not have books because they are waiting on refund checks.

    "Faculty have been instructed to use alternative methods in the classroom," said Newton.

    Archie said many students are not happy with their living arrangements.

    "It's like one room with two suites, so it's like 6 people to a bathroom," said Archie.

    "Our president actually made that decision," said Newton.

    Newton said it is a temporary fix while a new dorm is being built.

    "Some people are being charge two or three meal plans (for one meal) and for two or three dormitories," said Archie.

    "Our business office will have to go back in and clean up those charges," said Newton.
