How to Survive Psychology Graduate School

I recently received the following email: I have a friend who is in graduate school in Psychology at the University of Colorado. She's spent $17,000 (so far) on her education and cannot afford to transfer. But she's finding that if her Christian worldview informs any of her thinking on papers, on exams, etc., she will be downgraded. Other students have told her that if she even appears to espouse a Christian worldview she won't graduate. One of her biggest problems is that she is being forced to (at least appear to) view same-sex marriage as an acceptable alternative lifestyle when she strongly objects to it. I don't know to what degree the school's administration may be under pressure to indoctrinate students into a politically correct, left wing mold, but it worries me. I'd expect this sort of thing at UC-Boulder, but not here. Any suggestions?
