CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson University has received a $2
million gift to help create a new academic program and expand one
of the school's stadiums.

The school announced the gift by retired Equifax chairman and
CEO Thomas F. Chapman on Friday. Now a resident of Atlanta, Chapman
was a student-athlete at Clemson and received an athletic
scholarship.

He said he learned valuable lessons on and off the field at
Clemson and believes in giving back. School officials said $1 million will be used to support a leadership program in the College of Business and Behavioral Science. The remaining money will be used to add 1,000 seats to Doug Kingsmore Stadium.
