not into sports can Colby work

My daughter is interested but doesn't play any sport and no skiing/skating and never will. Have heard that's a big part of Colby life, she also doesn't drink - any social options?
looking for a school with serious academics esp science, arts and theater plus good language program.

    Our daughter (rising Junior) is no athlete either and loves Colby. She does ski and gets a season pass but many kids don't. She was in chem-free freshman year so drinking isn't a priority.
    She loves theater and has done three plays so far, lots of opportunities to engage.
    Colby is very strong academically, it's not easy to get top grades even where you excel. Sciences are a real pull for many candidates.
    Fell free to send me a private message should you have more questions.
