I think a lot of people are fans of the OU who don't have anything to do with the university.

It's not uncommon if you meet somebody at a party and tell them where you work and for them to tell you that they're a fan of the OU even if they've never had any direct contact with the university. Most people have a friend or relative who the OU changed the life of in some way.

The differences between other UK universities though are more interesting I think. I've also worked at four of the eight universities named rather remarkably. Not sure it gives me any insights though!


I think in the case of FB though, you can't belong to the OU Network without having a .open email account, and so general fans don't get access (I think). Anyway, shouldn't you be off getting married Juliette?
