The fountains are on once again at UAlbany.

The annual Fountain Day is the unofficial start of spring on the campus. College students were out in summer clothes, enjoying the weather and splashing around in the fountains.

But this year, some kids wound up injured and needed medical care. Spokespeople for the university said the injuries were due to slipping and falling, and some needed medical attention. None of the injuries reported were life-threatening.

School officials said they saw an unprecedented crowd this year.
They said they've never had a problem like this before, and are taking steps to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Meanwhile, this year Time Warner Cable's new channel "XY-TV" was launched at Fountain Day. XY-TV is a lifestyle channel for young adults. You can catch the new channel on Time Warner Cable.
