I took a tour yesterday, and my student tour guide was super into the music program at Goucher! If you're able, you should take a tour and ask for Joel :)
Both of those programs are available for student use on the public computers in the library.
Perhaps, but I've got news for you: once you get into the world beyond high school, people smoke cigarettes. I mean, I don't think people smoke more at Goucher than they do in any other place.
It depends who you ask, but I would say yes. During weekday evenings, odds are you will be working, but on the weekends there's plenty of partying (though the parties are small, confined to dorm rooms) that go on. If you're not into that kind of thing, there's Baltimore, which is a very fun city with lots to do, and also the school puts on a lot of dances throughout the year, some of which are better than others.
The Programming Board/Student Engagement office plans many events for each semester and clubs also host events, film screenings, and discussions throughout the weekday and weekend. There are plenty of activities to be involved in and the Programming Board accepts ideas from the general Goucher community.
You mean like intramural? Not that I'm aware of, but you could always be the first to start one :)

Goucher provides an atmosphere for students to grow, learn, and expand their views on the world without being restricted or criticized. With an attentive and experienced faculty, freedom to design one’s major, endless leadership opportunities, and a stimulating series of lectures, discussions, and performances, the Goucher experience is one-of-a-kind. Goucher is also the first school in the country to require that all students complete a study abroad experience. Despite complaints on parking, public transportation, the social scene, and campus facilities, the majority of Goucher students have great overall experiences. The quality and variety of the academics, study abroad programs, and the close-knit community are among the contributing factors to their experiences.
Students who transferred or wish they did disliked the atmosphere of student apathy toward on-campus events, clubs, and athletics. They felt that Goucher’s small community was too small for them and that it didn't provide enough options when it came to both academic and social life. One difference between those who have a great overall experience and those who do not is that the first group knows what they want from Goucher and are willing to take initiative to achieve it. The College doesn’t create the college experience for you—you actually have to get involved on campus and be proactive about things that interest you to find your place within the Goucher community. Students actively involved on campus cite this supportive and open-minded community as the core of their positive experience.
