College president issues video game challenge, will buy winner’s books

Scott Dalrymple, the new president of Columbia College in Missouri, has organized a video game challenge in which students will compete in the hopes of facing the college’s leader one-on-one.

The October event will pit students against each other on the popular sports video game “Madden NFL.” Dalrymple then will play the winner in front of a live audience. If the student wins, Dalrymple will pay for all of his or her textbooks for the entire academic year.
