The while loop in the searchname function always evaluates to true and keeps showing the prompt. You should also change the user input and the name data from the name object into a single case so varying input of the name can still be evaluated.

Hi Shane Oliver! Thank you for comment. I changed letters of input name and nameList object to lowercase, as you recommended. But I'm not sure about while loop issue. The aim of creating the infinite loop was to keep asking questions until user type "quit" or click "cancel".

New version of my solution: http://codepen.io/Bereon/pen/zqXBxp

var students = [

  {name: 'Peter', track: ['perl', 'python'], achievements: 0, points: 10},
  {name: 'David', track: ['pinky', 'duster'], achievements: 10, points: 80},
  {name: 'Justin', track: ['curl', 'php'], achievements: 5, points: 60},
  {name: 'John', track: ['ruby', 'javascript'], achievements: 8, points: 1000},
  {name: 'Twister', track: ['html', 'css'], achievements: 24, points: 70}


var printer = function (){
    for(var i = 0; i < students.length; i++){
       for(var key in students[i]){
         if(key === 'name'){
            document.write("<p>" + students[i][key] + "</p>");
            document.write("<p style=\"padding-left: 20px;\">"+ key + ": " + students[i][key] + "</p>");
