How to list my university on my CV/Resume?

The (state) university I attended was absorbed by a larger state school and the name of the school changed. How should I list this school on my resume - by the name it went by when I attended, or by the new name?

If it makes any difference, the old name was pretty obscure and was used for a single campus, very small university. The new name is more well known, and therefore probably more recognizable on a resume, but I feel like I didn't attend "the new" school. I currently have it listed under the old name and wonder if I should change it. Any advice?
