Javvad Syed’s energy was on public display Tuesday at the University of San Diego.

“I love to dance and I’m not shy about it,” said the senior Industrial and Systems Engineering major, minutes after he led a choreographed dance routine alongside fellow USD students, staff and even President Mary E.
