Here's how I did it!

What do you think?

var message = '';
var student;

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

while (true) {
  var studentName = prompt('What is the name of the student you are looking for? Type <quit to exit.>');
  if (studentName.toLowerCase() === 'quit' || studentName === null) {
    break;
  }
  else {
    for (var i = 0; i < students.length; i++) {
      if (studentName === students[i].name) {
        message += '<h2>Student: ' + students[i].name + '</h2>';
        message += '<p>Track: ' + students[i].track + '</p>';
        message += '<p>Points: ' + students[i].points + '</p>';
        message += '<p>Achievements: ' + students[i].achievements + '</p>';
        print(message);
      };
    };
  };
};

Well, I've run your code several times, and quitting is the only thing that it can do... So, no, it won't do. Need to come with something else

Happy coding!!!

Oh, I see, maybe the functions and variables defined are not the same here... It's ok..
