She needs to find a new line of work. Assuming she communicates well and is attractive, she should be able to get into some sales type work.

She can keep her acting as a part time or hobby type gig.

I have ZERO sympathy for people (smart people, too) who take out tens to hundreds of thousands in PRIVATE student loans (and, let's face it: these horror stories are almost all private student loans as federal student loans have income-based repayment plans, which allows for low income people to often pay $0 in monthly payments). When I was trying to figure out a way to cover the last $5,000 or so of college as I was preparing to enter college, I, too, applied for a private loan via My Rich Uncle. Before I signed anything, though (and, no, I didn't ultimately sign anything), I made sure to actually read through the documents and see how much I'd be repaying. For a $7,000 loan, I'd be paying back nearly $35,000, which was bat**** crazy. And, note, this was the amount that would be due, after interest, at the end of 4 years if I recall correctly! I quickly tore up that loan application and swore that if I wasn't able to find alternative funding sources, then I'd (gasp) just attend a local, cheaper university that I could actually afford (such as CUNY or SUNY). The information on loan amount and interest and what you're expected to pay over time is often plain as day if you actually take the time to read through these loan documents; it certainly was for me in 2007. If you choose to ignore these warnings to attend a school you can't afford and, so, shouldn't be attending, then don't blame the private lender. That or actually major in something that is much more likely to earn you a very decent paycheck upon graduation.
