For users in a group named "student":

# for each in $(getent group student | cut -d':' -f4 | tr ',' ' ');
# do ls -ld /home/$each;
# done

If that looks like the right students, change the "do" to something more
deadly, i.e. "do rm -rf /home/$each".

Be _really sure_ you're pointing at the right stuff before you let 'er
rip. Caveat emptor, and all that.
