Completing the Challenges + adding a "list" command as well! unit 1 Array Course!

This is how i did it!, i did not use anything outside of the video except for 1 new variable (and a couple of copy pastes) for the list command!

var message = '';
var student;
var search;
var stunm = [];

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

function getStudentReport (student){
  var report = '<h2>Student: ' + student.name + '</h2>';
  report += '<p>Track: ' + student.track + '</p>';
  report += '<p>Points: ' + student.points + '</p>';
  report += '<p>Achievements: ' + student.achievements + '</p>'; 
  return report
}
  for (var i = 0; i < students.length; i += 1) {
  student = students[i];
    stunm.push(student.name);
  }

while (true) {
 search = prompt('search student records: type a name [Jody] (type "quit" to end or "list" to see a list of students )');
if (search === null || search.toLowerCase() === 'quit') {
  break;
} 
  for (var i = 0; i < students.length; i += 1) {
  student = students[i];
  if (student.name === search) {
    message += getStudentReport( student );
    print(message);
  }

  } 
  if (search.toLowerCase() === 'list') {
   alert(stunm.join(', ')) 
  }else if (stunm.indexOf(search) < 0){
  alert('there is no student with that name');
  } 

}
