It's been a while since Rusty showed up at CRU totally clueless and determined to remake himself as a fun loving frat boy (taking honors Polymer Science on the side). He's learned that he'll always be who he is, but that he can expand his world. Rusty's still a geek to his core, but he's good with that. He's had a few girlfriends now and, while love doesn't come easy, he's getting (a little) better at it. And with good friends who stick by him, he's getting and surviving the kind of education they don't list in course guides.
