cloister cred

< Previous | Next >


Hi there!
please, I need some help to understand this word within the following sentence (don't try to make sense of it, it's a paranoic writing).

"Are you sure this is real Perrier? A degree with cloister cred, designer tampons and open-plan toilets"

I can not understand the meaning at all!! Thanks for any help.

    Este diálogo tiene mucho sarcasmo al describir una institución universitaria lujosa.

    "Cloister cred" (credibility) = el título/diploma de esta institución es prestigioso (ambiente intelectual, contemplativo como un claustro), junto con
    "tampones de diseño exclusivo" y aseos sin tabiques...

    Espera otra ayuda. Saludos.
