How to add a field and auto-populate for several feature classes?

Hi everyone,

 

I'm relatively new to ArcGIS, so please forgive my lack of knowledge. I have ~100 feature classes that I am going to combine into a single feature class, but before I do I want to add a field to each of their attribute tables, then have that field auto-populate from a value at the end of the name of the feature class. Is it possible to use a tool to do this all at once? All I know to do right now is manually add a field to each feature class one at a time, and then use the Field Calculator to populate the values.

 

Thanks for any help!
