After crashing my browser dozens of times trying to resolve this problem, I've finally done it, and I just want to share

var message = '';
var student;
var searchStudent;

function print(message) {
  var outputDiv = document.getElementById('output');
  outputDiv.innerHTML = message;

do {
  searchStudent = prompt("Enter student name for record.");
  if (searchStudent === 'quit' ) {
     message = '<h2>Reload this page to search again.<h2>';
   } else {
     for (var i = 0; i < students.length; i++) {
       student = students[i]
       if (searchStudent == student.name) {
         message += '<h2>Student: ' + student.name + '</h2>';
         message += '<p>Track: ' + student.track + '</p>';
         message += '<p>Points: ' + student.points + '</p>';
         message += '<p>Achievements: ' + student.achievements + '</p>';
       } else {
         message += 'No student by that name. Please reload to try again.';
while ( message === '' );
