Page doesn't render until after 'quit'

I can't seem to get it to the point of displaying one student's data AND asking for another. I found window.requestAnimationFrame(), here commented out, but that drops me out of the while loop entirely. Without it the program collects names and displays all of them at once after a quit.

var message = "";
var student;
var input;

function print(x) {
  var outputDiv = document.getElementById('output');
  outputDiv.innerHTML = x;
function searchStudents(name) {
  for ( i=0; i<students.length; i++ ) {
    student = students[i];
    if (input == student.name) {
function statBlock(result) {
  message += "<h2>Student: " + result.name + "</h2>";
  message += "<p>Track: " + result.track + "</p>";
  message += "<p>Points: " + result.points + "</p>";
  message += "<p>Achievements: " + result.achievements + "</p>";

do {
  input = prompt("Please enter a student's name (case sensitive), or 'quit' to stop searching.");
} while (input != "quit");

I know this question is super old but i'll still answer it. In one of the updates web browsers no longer function with the command prompt like they used to. Now it prints everything after the "program" quits running. It's a little annoying.
