    “Down the rabbit hole, we go, my dear statisticians!”

    In the midst of the academic hustle and bustle, there comes a beacon of light, offering refreshments and solace to weary souls. This is the world of “Alice in Borderland,” a week-long extravaganza that unfolds annually within the hallowed halls of the Polytechnic University of the Philippine (PUP) Statistics Students’ Clique community. In Borderland Wager: A Week of High Stakes, amidst the equations and statistical analyses, students find respite from the rigors of their academic life and immerse themselves in a tornado of competitions, camaraderie, and pure enjoyment. It’s a gamble—a dice roll, where the stakes are higher than a caffeine-fueled all-nighter you always pull.

    Wonderland to Borderland

    The choice of “Alice in Borderland” as this year’s theme is no mere coincidence. Much like the tale’s protagonist, participants are thrust into a world of uncertainty and challenge, where wit and courage reign supreme. It’s a metaphor for the academic journey, where students navigate through a labyrinth of concepts and theories, emerging stronger and more resilient with each trial.

    Exploring the Borderland

    The event will kick off for four days straight, April 15-18, across the digital and physical domains, with two days of thrilling online competitions on April 15-16, offering participants the chance to showcase their statistical prowess from the comfort of their own homes. Following this, the excitement continues with two days of face-to-face competitions on April 17-18, where teamwork, fun, and knowledge go hand-in-hand…-in-hand.

    The Four Royal Suits and Monarchs

    The stage is set with four distinct suits: hearts, diamonds, spades, and clubs, each representing a different aspect of the challenge. Hearts flutter with the promise of online lives, diamonds sparkle with intelligence, spades dig into physical challenges, and clubs unite in the spirit of teamwork.

    Teams are categorized in four Monarchs, which is to say by year level, from the wide-eyed freshmen to the seasoned seniors, ensuring fair and fierce competition. It’s not just about raw intelligence or physical strength; it’s about teamwork, communication, wit, and yes, raw knowledge and physical strength. Because let’s face it, in the real world of statistics, you need a bit of everything to succeed!
