Can my Major be completely different than my minor?
I want to major in Business and my minor to be interior designing.
I want to be an event planner when I grow up, but also have experience in interior designing to be a stager if that does not follow through.

Congratulations! You are at a great start in your career. Business and Design complement each other beautifully. Especially if your goal is to establish you own design/event business. Most interior designerslack the business aspect. I know a few of them with very talented and creative minds that can't run their own business. At some point their worries about managing and money issues take a toll in their creativity. Go for Mayor in Business and cultivate your creativity visit well design places and seek the company of creative people and you'll be in your way to be a sucessful designer entrepreneur.
By studying two very different fields you'll be able to cultivate different skill sets. When I was in college I chose to double major in Marketing and Women's Studies which couldn't be more opposite. Beyond just the pure differences in subject matter you may find that the two areas of study approach learning in different ways. My Marketing major was very group-project focused where my Women's Studies major was much more independent study-based. This allowed me to develop in very different ways and has been a major benefit in my professional career.
The two fields that you've picked seem like a natural pairing and would position you very nicely for the professional world. I think that Steve's comments above are absolutely fantastic and agree with him wholeheartedly.
