The building, which houses several classrooms, dormitory rooms, a cafeteria, the university’s mainframe computer and the majority of its servers, was built in 1895. As a result of the fire, parts of the roof and one of the main spires atop the main building collapsed.

Officials said a bomb threat was made against the institution May 5. Currently the case is being investigated and the university has vowed to rebuild.
